Yes We Can is the story of Barack Obama’s historic journey from junior Senator from Illinois to President of the United States of America—if all polls hold as indicated—as documented by Scout Tufankjian, the only independent photographer to cover his entire campaign from before he announced his run through the Election Night celebration in Chicago’s Grant Park. Obama’s grassroots journey touched something profound in America, inspiring millions of Americans, young and old, rich and poor, and from every racial and ethnic background, bringing together disparate people throughout the electorate in the service of change. In the course of his visits to almost every state in the union, Obama electrified record-breaking crowds at his rallies and motivated millions of people to engage in the political process. The results have been nothing short of a revolution in political strategy, communication, and activism.About The Author

About the Author Scout Tufankjian has had photographs published in every major newspaper and newsmagazine, including Newsweek, Time, The New York Times, Essence, People, The Guardian, ELLE, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Portfolio, Fortune, The Times of London, The Sunday Times, Stern, Der Speigel, and many others. Before covering the Obama campaign, Tufankjian worked primarily in the Gaza Strip for four years, photographing the conflict in the Middle East. She lives in Brooklyn with her boyfriend, and has a B.A. in Political Science from Yale.

From the Publisher:
Documents Obama's campaign from beginning to end through photographs, commentary, and excerpts from speeches that he gave.
This photographic record of Barack Obama's road to the White House contains over 200 images taken by New York photojournalist Scout Tufankjian over a two-year period. Tufankjian was there before many other journalists deemed the assignment worthy of their time, and her photos document the campaign early on. Here is candidate Obama at diners, town hall meetings, in the open air, and on the campaign bus and plane. Tufankjian captures, also, the faces of Americans from all regions and walks of life as they gave the new candidate a fair chance.
