White House photographer Pete Souza has been the official presidential photographer for multiple presidents, and he recently released a big batch of his work for the current one in a retrospective for The Guardian called “Photographing the Real Barack Obama.”
“Photographing the Real Barack Obama” is made up of photographs from all eight years of Obama’s presidency (with the last few months left to the future, naturally). The most striking ones are candid shots of Obama, some with Michelle, some from the basketball court, and many, many more. Other highlights are the photos that demonstrate Obama’s special rapport with his variety of child guests and visitors over the years.
You can take a look at some of the best photos from “Photographing the Real Barack Obama” in the gallery below. But it’s really worth your time to take a look at the whole Pete Souza feature at The Guardian‘s official site right here.
