Obama: The Historic Campaign & Victory in Photos
NEW YORK • Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture • Ongoing
The exhibition Obama: The Historic Campaign & Victory in Photos presents 100 photographs documenting the campaign from its start with several thousand supporters gathered in Springfield, Illinois on a very cold day in February 2007 to that unusually warm evening in Chicago on November 4, 2008 when Barack Obama delivered his victory speech as President-elect of the United States of America.
The exhibition includes photographs shot by professional photojournalists and portrait photographers as well as by individuals and students who used their cell phones and video and digital cameras to preserve his image. Among the photographers showcased in the exhibition are David Burnett, Timothy Greenfield Sanders, Benjamin Norman, Bob Gore, Dawoud Bey, and Terrence Jennings.
