Democratic National Convetion 2008 is a photographic tribute of the DNC in Denver. For one memorable week in the summer of 2008, the ambitions of a groundbreaking politician and a rising city matched perfectly. US senator Barack Obama, the first African American presidential nominee of a major political party, made his way west to accept his historic nomination before a massive gathering under the stars. And a burgeoning city eager to take its role as a great metropolitan area put on a show unlike any the national political parties had ever seen before.
Dozens of journalists and photographers from The Denver Post and Media News Group were on hand, day and night, to record every scene and document every word of the convention. The results were remarkable, for the man, for the city, for the newspaper, for the nation.
