US Inauguration Reportage

In 2009, on the heals of one of the most historic elections in US history, Dominick Santise traveled to Washington D.C. to document the 2009 Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama.

"This was my 2nd or 3rd time in D.C., I wasn't prepared for what I saw. D.C. wasn't prepared for what came. The metro lines were overwhelmed, people were climbing trees because The Mall wasn't big enough to hold the crowds, it was wild. Positive. Jubilant."

Returning in 2013 and 2017 he has made a personal commitment to document the peaceful transfer of power that has set the tone for nearly 250 years, even if it means from his living room couch during the COVID lockdown.
