In the scope of the US Midterms elections, NPR talked with Andrea Bruce about her latest project "Our Democracy". For the past 15 years, Andrea Bruce worked as a photojournalist in foreign countries that were at war or were in conflict. Places like Iraq and Afghanistan, where elections were often accompanied with corruption, sacrifice, protests and, often, death. Now, Andrea Bruce has been traveling throughout the United States to document why some voters won't cast their ballot this year.
In August, Andrea Bruce’s new project Our Democracy traveled to Rhode Island, Georgia and El Paso. In connection with the project, she is a CatchLight Fellowand a National Geographic Explorer. The Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting and National Public Radio are also supporting the project. See more about the project here: http://ourdemocracyproject.com
