About the Author
Pete Souza was the Official Chief White House Photographer for President Obama and the Director of the White House Photo Office. Previously Souza was an Assistant Professor of Photojournalism at Ohio University, the national photographer for the Chicago Tribune, a freelancer for National Geographic, and an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan. His books include the New York Times bestseller The Rise of Barack Obama, which documents the president's meteoric ascent from his first day in the U.S. Senate through the 2008 Pennsylvania presidential primary. Souza is currently a freelance photographer based in Washington, D.C.
A time when dignity, respect and character were the norm.
A great book with two strong redeeming features, the first being photographic brilliance. Every picture captures the moment perfectly and provides a pleasant walk through better times. The second reminds us of the man, the lady and the family that ruled the White House. Their respectfulness, compassionate character, dignity and understanding of duty will not be forgotten.
Wonderful coffee table book!
Great to not just see the beautiful photos, but also read the comments of some great moments in history.
