Overview

Yes We Can: Barack Obama's History-Making Presidential Campaign is the story of Barack Obama’s historic journey from junior Senator from Illinois to—if all polls hold as indicated—President of the United States of America, as documented by Scout Tufankjian, the only independent photographer to cover his entire campaign from before he announced his run through the expected election night celebration in Chicago’s Grant Park.

Obama’s grassroots journey touched something profound in America, inspiring individuals of every age, color, educational background, and economic status with his visions of leadership, belief in a better tomorrow, and a return to the hallmarks of American ideals. In the course of his visits to almost every state in the union, Obama electrified record-breaking crowds at his rallies and motivated millions of people to engage in the political process. The results have been nothing short of a revolution in political strategy, communication, and activism.

Be it a skeptical old farmer from Tama, Iowa, who was surprised to realize that he had something in common with this young black politician, or an eight-year-old boy from Los Angeles who couldn’t stop saying, “He looks like me and he is going to be President!”, Senator Obama instilled a feeling of unity and hope in a nation scarred by divisive politics and pessimism. Obama’s campaign created a movement, a faith, and a feeling that has not been present in American politics for decades—if ever. Yes We Can is a comprehensive and intimate portrait of this world-changing campaign. With more than 200 color photographs by Tufankjian, the book takes the reader along on Obama’s personal and political journey. Tufankjian was there from the beginning, attending a book signing almost two years ago in New Hampshire that marked the start of a fascination with the man who would be president.

Sensing something truly important was happening, Tufankjian decided to document the journey of this long-shot candidate. From coffee shops and diners to auto manufacturing plants and bowling alleys, Tufankjian followed Obama as he wooed potential voters in expensive houses as well as in poverty-stricken Indian reservations. She covered the primaries, the debates, and the final weeks of the hard-fought campaign, shooting more than 12,000 images—the deepest, most comprehensive, and most personal portrait of the man and his run as well as the people who came to see him, hear him, and vote for him. Yes We Can is as much about Americans and their hopes and visions for America as it is about the man that gave them voice.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The cover graphics imply a brash book, but the contents have nuance and subtle grace. The book bills Tufankjian only as the photographer-and her photographs are wonderful. With as many character shots of spectators as of the man himself, with framing and depth of field choices that are eloquent without being pretentious, she captures mood and atmosphere with seeming ease. But it is her brief autobiographical text at the start of each chronological section that additionally sets the book apart, allowing the reader to feel in the midst of the press corps as it followed Obama around the country. A tribute not only to Obama, with some pull quotes from his speeches, but to Tufankjian's skills with her Nikon.
—Margaret Heilbrun

    Yes We Can by Scout Tufankjian

    I was disappointed by this Book. Although it was more expensive than my other purchases which paid tribute to President Obama's historic campaign, I gave it away to a friend. To me the book looked poorly planned, poorly laid out and, most of the pictures taken were not that good. The author got more exposure than any other chronicler of Obama's campaign and, did the worst job in my opinion.

    Yes You Will like this book.

    I saw Scout (the photographer/author) interviewed on the Charlie Rose show and was very impressed with her story and went right out and purchased the book. I am very pleased with it. She has traveled the world photographing current events and she was with the Obama campaign from the beginning.

    The historic campaign story from the street level

    While this can be seen as merely yet another coffee table picture book, if one takes a closer look, there's a lot of the heart of America being shown inside. What makes Scout Tufankjian's work here so interesting is that she has intimately captured the anxieties and excitement of a nation's people seeking to reclaim their country, through the one man who ran for president on the theme of positive change. There are lots of books which feature pictures of Barack Obama, but few actually highlight the faces of those who got him where he is today.

    Not just Obama

    There are thousands of photos of Obama and this book has many wonderful ones. What makes this book so interesting is the faces of the people who are watching him. More than anything they show how powerful and inspiring he is and also how desperately people saw him as a force for change. The children's faces are the most moving. It is also terrific to find a photographer who is also so articulate. Her descriptions of the background of the photos are illuminating.
