Obama in Mali- a photo book by Janet Goldner. Available for purchase at BuildingBridgesPress@gmail.com. When Janet Goldner arrived in Mali in May 2009, she saw images of Obama everywhere - stuck on cars and motorcycles, painted on stores, printed on t-shirts and fabric. She also saw images of American flags in these same places either along side images of Obama or on their own. I enjoyed the variety of images, the context and the juxtapositions. Obama was often depicted along side other popular icons. These photographs document what Janet Goldner found in 2009 and 2010.
