January 20th, 2009

Anonymous graffiti, Chelsea Piers, NYC, Spring 2008
Civil War Memorial, NYC, Spring 2008

I posted these images Spring 2008 when I was cynical about the outcome of the election in November. I was fearful of another hyjack of election results and the rivalries within the Democratic party. Two million people assembled Tuesday to witness President Obama's inauguration. The day passed without a single report of unrest by the Washingon, D.C. police. Two million people, more than the entire population of most American cities, peaceably assembled for this occasion. Written in stone or with tape on a truck the writing of these images remain incomplete.
