(CNN)We've seen a lot so far at this week's Republican National Convention, but there's also plenty that has been going on off the stage each night.

While television provides us with clear-cut views of the speeches, photographer Martin Parr shows us the convention, unconventionally.

"Until you get to these things, you never quite know what you're going to see," Parr said before the convention started in Cleveland. "This is not boring, everyday life. This is people with extreme political convictions."
