A few direct quotes from the article:
"On my first visit I was struck by the visual interest of the election being played out against the backdrop of a fairly awkward time for the country."
"I became interested in photographing the influence of the media on the events - situations specifically set up for the benefit of the press. I noted how keen politicians seemed to be on getting their picture taken with anyone they could find in a wheelchair."
On using a small camera (the FujiFilm X10) rather than an SLR:
"I often found myself a few feet away from subjects, while the press photographers who arrived this week were further back. With the silent shutter, people usually forgot I was there, allowing me to get mostly naturalistic photos, rather than staged looking pictures."
