International award-winning photographer Patricia Houghton Clarke has just released her "HOLD HOPE: Obama in Santa Barbara, 2007" series. These never-before-shown, black and white images were taken during Obama's campaign visit to Santa Barbara, California, in 2007. Each of the 18 images captures the dignified spirit of the former President, along with his powerful message of hope expressed in the faces of the public at his recession-era address.
Proceeds of sales of these works will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
