JUST ANNOUNCED! Changing Hands Bookstore is proud to present Pete Souza, former Chief Official White House Photographer for President Barack Obama. He'll be at Mesa Arts Center on Saturday, January 13 with his stunning new photography book OBAMA: AN INTIMATE PORTRAIT. In this special talk, slideshow presentation, and audience Q&A session, Souza will discuss what it was like to capture both the most important moments of the presidency as well as unguarded ones with the Obama family.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Relive the extraordinary Presidency of Barack Obama through White House photographer Pete Souza's behind-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 with the President during more crucial moments than anyone 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 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.

This book puts you in the White House with President Obama, and will be a treasured record of a landmark era in American history.

Souza served as the chief official White House photographer for the entire eight years of the Obama administration. He’ll discuss what it was like to capture both the most important moments of the presidency as well as unguarded ones with the Obama family.
