A friend recently sent me this link. Callie Shell followed Obama for about two and a half years (on assignment for Time -yeah, yeah) photographing him during this long campaign. We've all seen pictures, but these really got to me.
As a piece of photo journalism - her images are remarkable, in some ways even more extraordinary than those recently published of Bobby Kennedy during his 72 day campaign.
The pictures capture a sense of the solitariness, the exhaustion, the nature of him and his family, and the sense of walking a precipice even as Obama travelled farther than any one ever imagined.
Be sure to keep clicking at the bottom to see the full slate of images. They remind me, again, of what an amazing accomplishment this truly was for him and for us as a nation.
