Thoroughly illustrated in this well researched photo collection is the cornerstone of American politics — the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next. More than that, each image is a time capsule of American culture, identity, and politics, and a testament to the thread of reverence and patriotism which sews together our nation’s history.

This photo series will resonate deeply with anyone passionate about the advancement of women's rights. The beautifully brave Queens of Marok in Paul Shiakallis's portraits are foot soldiers deep in that fight right now. Not only do they defy their family and society's narrow expectations of how a woman, wife, and mother should express herself, but they also had the courage to be photographed and thereby etched into history as an example for younger girls to follow.
