one classy gent

Probably everyone has seen these college pictures of Obama taken by Lisa Frank in 1980, but I'm quite fond of them so I felt like posting regardless. Also, it makes me want to take more photo shoots of my friends. In black and white. With cigarettes and silly hats.

The intimacy and insights of portraits gets lost with our saturation of photographs on sites like facebook, something that an intentional photo shoot brings about. And besides, you never know who will rise to fame in a few decades.
