HOPE Portraits '09

On Tuesday, January 20, 2009 

Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. A group of friends and I collaborated in documenting this momentous occasion and the beauty of our sisters and brothers. I took these street portraits on Crenshaw Boulevard in Los Angeles, California in front of a vintage American Flag we used as a backdrop. 

Special thanks to the subjects for sharing a moment of themselves in time.  

Lots of love to my collaborators and creative family: 

Bruce F. Cole, Adam Tillman-Young, Shalonda Cornitcher and Dominique Dawson
