“CHANGE IS COMING”

Election Night; Chicago
Edited by Jamie Carreiro, Co-edited by Jay Sansone, Graphics by Kohta Asakura

Chicago. Election Night. 2008. The advent of the great rush of “change”, with the triumphant toppling of the ill fated GOP. Grant park was the historical equivalent of the ’68 Demonstrations,  and Times Square New Years Eve, all rolled into one. Chance enough, the November night served up 60 degree weather, perhaps not only a symbol of things to come, but an opportunity for those to show support like never before, in the millions. The streets were full of riots, but not of malice or anger, but of exuberance and an instinctual feeling of hope, that not only seemed right, but righteous.

Grant Park, Chicago.
