"Obama: An Intimate Portrait" By Photographer Pete Souza
Pete Souza spent eight years in the White House, photographing President Barack Obama.
“He was so comfortable in front of the camera,” Souza says. “Meaning that he didn’t really change how he did anything. The presence of my camera didn’t affect him in one way so I was able to make these really intimate pictures even on his first day.”
From the fun to the solemn to the iconic (see below for examples), Souza’s photographs defined an administration. He joins us to offer a glimpse inside Obama’s White House.
