Barack Obama (by Lisa Jack, 1980)

Asombrosas fotografías en blanco y negro de Barack Obama como estudiante de primer año en 1980.

En 1980, cuando Obama era conocido como “Barry”, un estudiante de primer año en el Occidental College de Los Angeles, fue abordado por una aspirante a fotógrafa llamada Lisa Jack, quien le preguntó si estaría dispuesto a posar para algunas fotografías en blanco y negro que ella podría utilizar en su portfolio.

Las fotografías ofrecen un retrato íntimo del que pronto-sería-político, fumando cigarrillos, mostrando su sonriente firma, con propensión al estrecho marco de un santo y escondiéndose bajo el ala de un sombrero de paja.

Amazing B&W Photographs of Barack Obama as the Freshman in 1980.

In 1980, when Obama was known as “Barry”, a freshman at Occidental College in Los Angeles, he was approached by an aspiring photographer named Lisa Jack, who asked him if he would be willing to pose for some black and white photographs that she could use in her portfolio.

The photographs provide an intimate portrait of the soon-to-be-politician, chain smoking cigarettes, flashing his signature grin, leaning within a narrow frame of a hallow and hiding beneath the brim of a straw hat.
