James Weegi captures Presidential fabrics


One of the talks at the 39th Annual Liberian Studies Association conference in March 2007 at Indiana University, Bloomington featured photographs from the Inauguration of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf by James Weegi. Mr. Weegi's presentation file is huge and takes a few moments to download. It's well worth the wait! The fashions on Inauguration Day - January 16, 2006 - were fantastic! Mr. Weegi captured photographs of women wearing dresses made from fabrics featuring the new president. I counted at least three different prints - including the print in the photo here. Mr. Weegi - thank you very much for capturing the +50 photos and sharing them across the Atlantic!

Kyra, I don;t know where to click to see the inauguration pictures. Do I have to sign in?

Hey Mom!

If you click on Mr Weegi's name, you'll be able to download his PowerPoint. The file is HUGE and it takes about 10 mins. The photos, though, are WONDERFUL!

Next time I'm home, I'll download for you. :>
