On January 20th, Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America. Alan Taylor of the Boston Globe has posted 48 photos of the inauguration of Barack Obama which illustrate the far-reaching impact of this event around the world. His collection is a compilation of photos taken by photojournalists around the world. One of photos posted on his site is this one by Susan Walsh with Associated Press.
You can view another interesting collection of photos of President Obama by going to Pete Souza’s website, as well as that of the White House. Pete is the Obama White House’s official photographer. He takes upward of 1,500 photos a day – and is the photographer who gets to stay when all the other photogs are shooed away.
