"When 'Barry' Became Barack"
This is a photo from Barack Obama's senior year at Punahou High School in Hawaii back in 1979. Newsweek assigned me to photograph the image for their latest cover "When 'Barry' Became Barack." Turns out "Barry" first attended college in Eagle Rock at Occidental College. He was often seen at a famous local eatery Casa Bianca eating his favorite pizza, Hawaiian Style.
