I wanted to, with this project, express the unity of peoples that makes the nation as great as it is. I asked two good friends, from both major political parties, to pose for a photograph, holding each other's hands, which were painted red and blue. After the shoot, I edited the image, and eventually came to the finished product that you see now. - John B Hynes
