The Gadsden Mall security had Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires surrounded. Their orange lights bounced off the water of the nearby wildlife park and the exterior walls of the shopping complex.

With a PA in the bed of a Toyota Tacoma, decorated with posters for U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones, Birmingham’s southern punk rockers were halted somewhere between the food court and Sears, where two former female employees described unwanted advances by Jones’ opponent Roy Moore in the fall of 1977. Getting kicked off of mall property seemed fitting.

Without resistance and with hours until polls opened, the band shut down their show and ended their day long tour campaigning for what would be the first  Alabama democrat elected to the senate in 25 years.

In anticipation of working on a Portrait of AIabama Voters, I arrived a few days early in Birmingham a week ago today to take in the atmosphere. And for me, that involves being a photojournalist - without any assignments or deadlines. Here’s a look at Birmingham during the days leading up to last week’s election
