Digital Madrid Previews Photos From a Pro-Trump Rally

When Jaleel Mussington set out to photograph a rally at Trump Towers in late April, he didn’t know what he was getting into. Called “100 Days of Failure,” Mussington assumed it would be an anti-Trump protest, but what he found was entirely different.

The crowd of around 100 people was very tense. “There were definitely some violent moments,” the native New Yorker tells MASS APPEAL. “A young kid had an anti-Trump sign knocked out of his hand by an older Trump supporter. They felt extremely comfortable in that environment.”

But the crowd also featured a surprising cast of characters, including Latino and Jewish supporters of Trump. “Even though we are aware he has a wide range of supporters, it’s still shocking to see members of communities that he does not support heavily advocate for him, especially Latinos, women and members of the LGBTQ community,” Mussington says,

His shots were for Digital Madrid 7, an online gallery curated by Kadeem Fletcher that will be released in full on August 3. This edition’s theme is politics and social change, and though Mussington had gone to the rally to capture the public’s disapproval of Trump, now he says, “I like what I was able to communicate better.”

The resulting black and white shots are full of anger and irony. Body language and signage speak as loudly as words, and it’s all captured in crisp silver tones.

Watch for Digital Madrid 7 to drop this Thursday.
