People always remember what they were doing when a historic event occurred. So when they experience the inauguration with their family and friends, Kodak invites them to not only remember the moment, but capture and share it with those who matter most. In celebration of the historic Inauguration of president-elect Barack Obama, Kodak has partnered with prominent political and civil rights photographers Bob McNeely and Ben Fernandez to discuss the emotional power of photography and to encourage the world to capture the historic moment of Barack Obama's election with a family portrait.

McNeely, former personal photographer of President Bill Clinton and director of photography at the White House during Clinton's presidency is accompanying President-elect Barack Obama in the days leading up to and just after his historic Inauguration. McNeely's images will be shown daily at 4 p.m. on Kodak.com.
