PICTURE THIS: SPITZER TAKES GRAND CENTRAL

New York Post

December 4, 2006 -- Eliot Spitzer will take over Grand Central Terminal next month with a photo exhibition of images from his campaign.
"The Making of a Governor" will chronicle the stump speeches, handshakes, autographs and exhaustion of running for office - in a series of large black-and-white photos intended to evoke the iconic images of the Kennedy years.
The exhibit is to run Jan. 7-23 at Vanderbilt Hall and may then tour the state.
Photographer Marius Muresanu said he approached Spitzer with the idea after seeing one of Jacques Lowe's famous images of President Kennedy campaigning.
"Campaigns today are very different, of course," Muresanu said. "For one, everyone is constantly using their BlackBerrys.
"I had never photographed a political subject," he said. "What interested me is what it takes to become a governor in this day and age."
He said he spent eight months on the campaign trail and was granted full access - even though the governor-elect has been "known not to love photographers."
Muresanu is still scouring through thousands of negatives to decide which prints make the cut.
MTA officials said the Spitzer campaign paid $37,500 to rent the space.


A photo journal of Eliot's campaign...just like President Kennedy's.....hopefully someday there will be a photo journal of Eliot's presidential campaign and victory as well............andy
