Portraits From the Republican National Convention, Part One

Photo: Christopher Anderson/Magnum

The delayed kick-off to the Republican National Convention starred a lot of colorfully dressed delegates, Ann Romney, and the spotlight-hogging Chris Christie. Relegated to the background were the everyday conventiongoers, the fabric of the Grand Old Party. Luckily, New York photographer-in-residence Chris Anderson was on hand to document the scene, including some unfamiliar but all-American faces, along with the war-ready security forces.
