A change a new hope on inauguration day for new President of United States of America Barack Obama. Hopes are high when a young student artist David Lane asks celebrating members of the public outside the American Embassy to write on his portrait of Obama, what they think 'change' is? US Embassy, Grosvenor Square, London, England 20th January 2009
In retrospect we can see the student was being naive. It is difficult to believe now, but at the time people really did hope and believe that Barack Obama would do what he said so, confidently, he would do, close Guantánamo, end the war and change America for the better.
