The Big Picture, Again

The Boston Globe’s The Big Picture site keeps on delivering fabulous imagery. This time, Obama.

Also see these remarkable Callie Shell photographs. About Callie Shell, from The Digital Journalist:

Four years ago Time photographer Callie Shell met Barack Obama backstage when she was covering presidential candidate John Kerry. She sent her editor more photographs of Obama than Kerry. When asked why, she said, “I do not know. I just have a feeling about him. I think he will be important down the road.” Her first photo essay on Obama was two and half years ago. She has stuck with him ever since.

UPDATE 11/19/08: There is some controversy swirling about in photography circles concerning the Callie Shell work. Some believe it is clearly inspired, if not a direct rip-off, of photographer Paul Fusco’s 1968 work on the RFK Funeral Train. Judge for yourself.
