Click to preview Seco Pearl by Susan Ressler photo book

Before Barack Obama was elected, the village of Arroyo Seco (just north of Taos) in New Mexico was celebrating independence with a unique 4th of July Parade. But in 2008, everyone "upped the ante" and the parade included more political floats, in the hope that Obama would be elected.

In 2009 I reissued this book to celebrate Obama's presidency and the regime change we all hoped was underway.

This is a reissue of the 2009 edition with a twist: a postscript added in 2010 that questions just how far we've actually come.

This book is a "gem" just like Arroyo Seco. And because of its focus on Obama (in the floats and the shining faces), it's a moment you won't soon forget.
