Missing Barack Obama? Follow Former White House Photographer Pete Souza

If you’re like me, I’ve suffering from serious separation anxiety from not seeing my Forever President Barack Obama on the news daily. I set up google alerts to get my daily dose of “what’s Barack been up to?” Can anyone else relate? If you too suffer from a terrible case of separation anxiety, get familiar with Pete Souza, former Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama.

Souza captured nearly two million pictures of Obama during his terms in office and in November, released OBAMA: An Intimate Portrait.

Barnes and Noble‘s overview reads:

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.”

If you follow Pete Souza on Instagram, he regularly shares photos from Obama’s time in office. He’s quite comical as well, occasionally throwing shade at 45. I recommend you check out his page.

And don’t forget to pick up a copy of OBAMA: An Intimate Portrait. It’s the PERFECT stocking stuffer!
