What Time is it? Obama time!

May 5, 2008

Obama’s short time into the American psyche has not only influenced the political African American market, it has also influenced the cultural style market; prompting this shoot from uber trendy magazine Paper.

The brilliant prospect about this, as that their is finally a just little more diversity amongst the pages of the hardened fashion elite magazines.

The lines are crisp and clean just like his style; with even an awkwardness in the posing to truly get a sense of Obama in his suits. They’ve chosen well with the models-they’re striking but incredibly placid and non threatening…just like Mr Barack!

We need more of these-not of Obama per se but other intriguing and prominent black or other ethnic cultural icons…

Paper Magazines shoot is sound and can be seen on their site, as well as editorial on ROD 2.0 were the image comes from, with some interesting commentary and further links.
