Click to preview Obamanos! photo book

Barack and Michelle Obama traveled to New Mexico to campaign this pivotal swing state in September and October of 2008 respectively.

I spent much of Obama's 40 minutes with us in the midst of a huge crowd in Espanola, on tip toes, at a 65º angle, making many of the shots over my head. There were 10,000 people crowded into the town plaza, and it was a truly amazing experience. This is a small sampling of images from that historic campaign stop, and some of Michelle as she rocked the sleepy town of Las Vegas, New Mexico one month later.
