The reality of Bernie Sanders' viral picture

Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont was also present at the ceremony.

Sanders, wearing a face mask and gloves, was photographed by senior American photographer Brendan Smyaloski at the ceremony. The image has now gone viral, drawing the attention of Americans.

This seemingly normal picture is creating a kind of wave in the world of the internet. Photographer Brendan didn't even bother to create creative mimes around the world.

Brendan, who works for the global news agency AFP, is a photojournalist for the Political Bureau. Sanders' posture in the photo of Brendan makes him look happy during the event.

"It's not a great picture, it's a beautiful moment," he said. Rob Lidon, a journalist at Square Media, says the picture is no more than an important document in American political history.

Brendan captured the image on his camera at 11:30 a.m. local time, half an hour before President-elect Biden was sworn in at the swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday.

"I was in a certain position," he says. Living like this makes you very embarrassed to be creative. In fact, it was a historic moment and there I had to take a picture of a period of history and its reality. But some things made the swearing-in ceremony different. '

He goes on to say, "First of all, I was looking for a picture that could represent and explain the impact of Covid, and then the Capitol Hill riots on January 6, the outgoing president's dissatisfaction with the outcome."

Of course, I could show him the security outside, the seats kept far away, the crowd of people huddled in the mall to watch the ceremony. At that time I was wondering how the picture could explain this story.

Also, I was wondering what I would do if I had to do the same picture. "

I was looking everywhere. But as we all know, Bernie Sanders had a strong vote in the early stages of voting and his brand is very influential in politics.

On top of that, his image is also very heavy. So my eyes were on him. Also on top were Ted Crew and Jose Hawley. I was sitting at the bottom of the ceremony when the swearing-in ceremony was about to take place.

That's when I took this picture. 'He immediately sent the pictures to his editor. Only Thursday, the day after the photo was published, Brendan says the photo went viral. In support of the agency.
