The ultimate celebration of the historic Obama years, this is the definitive visual biography of Barack Obama's historic presidency, captured in unprecedented detail by his Chief White House photographer, presented in an oversize, 12"x10" exquisitely produced format, and featuring a foreword from the President himself.

Pete Souza was with President Obama during more crucial moments than anyone else and he photographed them all - from the highly classified to the disarmingly candid.

Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces more than three hundred of Souza's most iconic photographs in exquisite detail, some of which have never been published before.

Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, document the most consequential hours of the Presidency alongside unguarded moments with the President's family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.

These images communicate the pace and power of America's highest office and reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became President. The result is a portrait of exceptional intimacy and a stunning record of a landmark era in American history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Precious historical documents . . . vividly human and often funny . . . these images tell the true story of a presidency that words have failed. - Jonathan Jones, Guardian

Capture the vibrancy of the young President and his family - New Yorker

Tickles the synapses, a behind-the-scenes moment of the most delightful and surprising kind . . . In the pressurized atmosphere of the presidential bubble, Souza gets to disappear into the molecules, hoovering moments the rest of us could only dream of seeing. - Washington Post
