TIME recaps political photography from the week of Feb. 25–March 3

With Super Tuesday behind us, the campaign is officially in full swing. But, that also means photographers have been following and documenting the various candidates for months now.

—TIME’s selection of the Surprising Political Photographs of the Week is published every Thursday.
