Between January and November 2016, George Georgiou photographed spectators lining the streets of big cities and small towns across the United States of America, as they watched or waited for parades. He visited fourteen different states, twenty-four cities, and twenty-six parades. The visual approach was simple and eloquent. Standing on one side of the route, Georgiou would wait for a clear view to photograph a section of the group on the other. The New York Times saw some early examples and immediately supported the project, allowing Georgiou to make several extended trips from his home in England.

Georgiou photographed throughout the 2016 presidential campaigns. The first parade he visited was a Martin Luther King Jr. celebration in Long Beach, California. The last was in Brockton, Massachusetts, on November 26, shortly after Donald Trump had been elected president. Along the way, he photographed Gay Pride, Saint Patrick’s Day, Jesse James parades, Mermaid Parades, George Washington Day, Charro Days, the Fourth of July, Black History Month, Thanksgiving Day, and Mardi Gras.
