" Family pictures give rare glimpse into Obama's life"

NY Daily News:
These pictures, freshly released by Barack Obama's campaign, show some of the poignant chapters in the life of the presidential candidate.

The undated photo of Obama and his father captures the only time the two met.
His father, also Barack Obama, left to study at Harvard when Obama was 2 and only returned once. The Illinois senator wrote movingly in his memoir of the visit, remembering the African records they danced to and the gift of a basketball.

In another photo, Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, is also seen with the candidate's father. They divorced and Obama's mother remarried and moved to Indonesia before settling in Hawaii.

A smiling Obama is pictured sitting with his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, on a park bench in New York when he was a student at Columbia University. Obama was raised by his mother and his grandparents in Hawaii.

After Columbia, Obama went to Harvard Law School, where he met another Harvard Law graduate, Michelle Robinson, who became his wife and mother of their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
