During my research on Early American history, I found my self intrigued by the visual impact of our corpus of Presidents. A medley of men, particularly of a homogeneous nature. Musty images of our Presidents often remind us of our awkward middle-school days, memorizing names and dates, scenes of war, and high society from a time long past. I am interested in re-exploring the presentation and representation of our Nationís past and our future.- Lena Reynoso
