Newsom Inauguration

These photos were taken on January 6, 2023 on Inauguration Day in Sacramento, California. I was in the media pool and made this image when Governor Gavin Newsom walked across the Tower Bridge as part of the “People’s March.” After the Governor and the crowd passed us, he walked a little farther before entering an SUV, while the marchers continued toward a stage set up in front of the Capitol. Newsom and his family re-appeared on the stage for his second swearing-in ceremony. The event was specifically planned to occur on the two-year anniversary of the storming of the U.S. Capitol, and it was reminiscent of Barack Obama’s march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala - itself a commemoration of the civil rights march there in 1965.
