It was a historic night in Chicago’s Grant Park as hundreds of thousands turned out to witness Barack Obama’s victory as the 44th President of the United States. I wanted to make a photograph that captured the spirit of the evening and as we looked for a place to watch we stopped near one of the many giant screens set up around
the park that evening.
The resulting photograph has all the things I love about images like this. Especially in b&w, the photo has a timeless quality about it with the beautiful architecture of Michigan Avenue as the backdrop.
The response to this image has been so incredible, I’ve decided to offer signed, limited edition prints of this photograph to anyone who is interested. Signed, matted 10×8″ giglée archival print of President-Elect Barack Obama’s historic victory speech in Chicago’s Grant Park in front of hundreds of thousands of onlookers. Only $55 including shipping to the continental US.
