Shanghai Radio made a show from Time Square in New York during the election of the 44th President of United States of America. The experience of being there and feeling the unity of New Yorkers was indescribable. We were standing just outside “ABC news” studio, the atmosphere was tense. When it got to the point where Obama was elected the crowed went crazy! screaming, jumping, crying, hugging, yelling, smiling … silence… A person told me at some point, that this united feeling had not existed in New York since 9/11…
When Obama held his speech, New York held it´s breath. I wanted to take photos of the people listening to the historical speech, their faces and the look in their eyes was amazing. On the other hand I wanted to hear and see what he was saying to the world.
I will share some of the photos with you from that moment of people dreaming of new and better times.
This is what they saw on a big screen:
