Relive the strange Presidency of Barack Obama through White House photographer Pete Souza's at the back of-the-scenes images and stories–some published here for the first time–with a foreword from the President himself.
During Barack Obama's two terms, Pete Souza was once with the President all through more a very powerful moments than somebody else–and he photographed them all. Souza captured nearly two million photographs of President Obama, in moments highly classified and disarmingly candid.
Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces more than 300 of Souza's most iconic photographs with fine-art print quality in an oversize collectible format. Together they document the most consequential hours of the Presidency–including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room all through the bin Laden mission–alongside unguarded moments with the President's circle of relatives, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.
Souza's photographs, with the at the back of-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, be in contact the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the strange man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to “be kind and be useful,” as he would instruct his daughters.
This book puts you in the White House with President Obama, and will be a treasured record of a landmark era in American history.
