Peruse this picture album: Scout Tufankjian on the Obama trail

Peruse: v. to examine, look over or through, to study.

Picture: n. a design or representation made by various means (as painting, drawing, or photography), a description so vivid or graphic as to suggest a mental image or give an accurate idea of something

This historic presidential campaign has been followed closely – not just by us Obama fans and journalists, but by some wonderful photographers. I’ve seen some remarkable photos already, but Scout Tufankjian’s are among the very best, the most evocative. She even did a whole collection on the Secret Service men who kept him safe.

Her book, Yes We Can, is coming out next month, but meanwhile check out the couple hundred photos on her website. I can’t show you a sample, so take a look at her website.
