During the nicely warm Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, Washington visitors flocked to the White House to pose for pictures with unusual energy. The political meaning of the divisive election campaign was evident, as was the power of photography. Far from being destroyed by the digital era, photography has flourished, even been unleashed. Kodak and Polaroid each championed its democratization in the last century, but the barriers of entry to a somewhat elite form of expression have fallen even further. Everyone has a camera, and the results are instant, just as George Eastman and Edwin Land dreamed.
