Abstract

Everything about the image was designed to inspire.

The evening that Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominated by a major political party to the U.S. presidency ended with a montage of the 43 American presidents elected to the highest office in our land. As each black and white portrait of man after man after man flashed on the screen, the historic nature of her accomplishment was brought into sharp focus by the shattering of this collage of men to reveal the image of Hillary Clinton, in full color, ready to address the crowd via satellite.
