about this item

This is the definitive visual biography of Barack Obama's historic Presidency, captured in unprecedented detail by his White House photographer--and presented in an oversize, 12"x10" exquisitely produced format, and featuring a foreword from the President himself.
Pete Souza served as Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama's full two terms. He was with the President during more crucial moments than anyone else--and he photographed them all. Souza took nearly two million photographs of President Obama, capturing moments both highly classified and disarmingly candid.
Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces Souza's most iconic photographs in exquisite detail, more than three hundred in all. Some have never been published. These photographs document the most consequential hours of the Presidency--including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room during the bin Laden mission--alongside unguarded moments with the President's family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.
Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary 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.
The result is a portrait of exceptional intimacy and a stunning record of a landmark era in American history.

The book is a classic coffee table book that you will enjoy for years to come. I bought as a gift for my Dad, who loves it already, & I have looked at it several times but have not made it through yet. The quality is superb (as I would expect), but the feelings of pride and love for "OuR" POTUS are ...see moreof the reviewer's review

A wonderful collection of pictures of our 44th President. Pete Souza has an innate ability to capture so many things with just one picture. I am so proud to have this in my home. A reminder of a truly great President.

I bought this photo book to display in my living room. I was so blown away by the images that I bought two more as Mother's Day gifts for my mom and sister. Its sturdy, well-bound, and looks great on a large coffee tables. Definitely worth the price.
