Lisa Jack was too lucky that she picked Barack Obama as her model in 1980. Lisa jack was an aspiring photographer at Occidental College in Los Angeles and was searching for a model desperately. It was recommended that she take photographs of a young freshman, who later transferred to Columbia University in New York, by the name of Barry. Obama posed willingly, his legendary future as the first multiracial African-American President of the United States unbeknownst to all. After a brief afternoon photography session, these images remained hidden from the public for 28 years, until Lisa Jack decided to search for them as a result of a dare. This exhibition made it possible for these images to be printed and displayed for the first time! The photos are suggestive of that familiar sense of magnetism and humanity that helped him to become the 44th President. Check out Barack Obama Photos In 1980 By Lisa Jack.
