Photo Friday: Election Edition

November 7th, 2008 by Ross

I have to admit that I am really excited about the election results. I’m sure that most people out there are in the same boat as I am but to finally see something happen in politics that doesn’t frustrate the hell out of me is a truly satisfying feeling! Of course, it is now time to wait and see if PRESIDENT Obama can bring about the change he has been talking about his entire campaign.

That leads me to this weeks topic. Its pretty interesting to look at the way images work to influence people especially when it comes to a political stand point. With the rise of digital photography to the point that it is at and how demanding the internet can be for a constant update of content and images it has pushed photographers to create new and compelling images that have broken outside the box of normal (and in my opinion boring) photojournalism. If a candidate makes one wrong move and its captured on film it can change the face of the entire campaign. Since PRESIDENT Obama (I love the sound of that!) began his campaign almost two years ago there have been some amazing images of him working so hard to earn the votes that he did. This week I share a few of my favorites with you.

See more after the jump.

    I wonder if the campaign trail photos of McCain and/or Palin looked similar. It seems that people “saw” Obama as a leader through their camera lenses prior to becoming elected.
