Waiting: Obama listens from a back stairwell as he is introduced in Muscatine, Iowa. It was his second or third speech of the day. Unlike many of the politicians I have photographed in the past, I find it is easy to get a photograph of Obama alone. He lets his staff do their jobs and not fuss over him. Nov. 7, 2007.

By now everyone's seen beaucoup images of Obama and his family, but here is a link to some of the most moving. I love the intimacy of the photographer's captions. Looking at the photos imparts the feeling of politics in another exciting time, the 1960s. Obama comes across as an old-fashioned, no nonsense politician (assuming such a person has existed).
