A photo taken by senior Rasheed Nazeri at President Barack Obama's Inauguration was on display in the Smithsonian for two months during the summer.
The Smithsonian Museum of American History, in partnership with the Presidential Inaugural Committee, created the exhibition, "I Do Solemnly Swear: Photographs of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration," and showed photographs taken by 10 professional photographers. The committee also asked amateur photographers to submit their photos for consideration to be included in the exhibition or in the official Inaugural book.
Of the more than 3,000 photos submitted, 26 were chosen to be shown along side the professional photos at the museum — one of which was mine Nazeri's.
The exhibition ran from April 28 to July 12.
