The episode will air live tonight, November 5th, 2008 at 10pm. For more info, visit http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com.
Aurora photographers Callie Shell, Heather Brand, Jay L. Clendenin and Scott Goldsmith will have images featured on Frontline: The Choice 2008 presented tonight on PBS. The two-hour program will explore the presidential race “that pits the iconoclast John McCain against the newcomer Barack Obama; the heroic former prisoner of war against the first African American major party nominee.” The personal and political pasts of these two men will be examined and illustrated with poignant photographs by these Aurora photographers, among others.
Watch The Choice 2008 on PBS starting tonight, Tuesday, October 14th at 9pm EST or check your local listings for national rebroadcasts.

Aurora Select photographer Katja Heinemann contributed to the Spelling Change campaign, a fun, innovative movement designed to encourage people to vote. The non-profit was created by New York artists, photographers and designers, and hopes to spread awareness and passion about the Obama campaign by creating images that help people spread the word about issues concerning them.
Though Katja has lived in the US for 17 years, she was born and raised in Germany and will not be able to vote in November’s election. Katja never quite felt comfortable telling people who to vote for (in her German accent), so volunteering her time as a photographer felt like a great way to contribute to an important cause.
