It is truly an exciting time to be alive. Two days ago, the world changed for the better in so many ways as Barack Obama accepted the responsibility and the role of the President Elect of the United States of America. While for many it seems that Obama was created to take on this role, there were many, many months of hard work and preparation in order for this amazing historical event to take place. For 22 months, Obama took his message of Hope and Change across the country, and Scout Tufankjian, a photo journalist from Brooklyn New York was along for this remarkable journey documenting each state, city, town, and individual that the Obama campaign touched. This incredible work can be seen on Scout’s website http://www.scouttufankjian.com/main.php and will soon be gracing bookshelves all across the world with Yes We Can the book. Through her intimate and thoughtful photographs, Scout illustrates how the Barack Obama campaign for President has brought new life and meaning to the concepts of change, hope, unity, and equality. Historic and transformative times such as today are few and far between, and the photographs taken by Scout Tufankjian help us to understand the meaningfulness of this time and to hold onto it forever. So, take a look and enjoy.
