Obama: An Intimate Portrait
As the official White House photographer, Pete Souza lived with U.S. President Barack Obama for ten to twelve hours a day, for five or more days a week, throughout the entire eight years of the Obama administration, shooting over two million photographs.
An exhibition with a selection of Souza's images at MAEC museum is included in Cortona On The Move photography festival, which give us a personal insight into Obama the man and his fundamental role in international politics.
Pete Souza (1954, South Dartmouth, U.S.A.) was the official photographer for Ronald Reagan as well as Barack Obama.
In addition to the U.S. political scene he has covered many recent stories around the world. His photos have appeared in National Geographic, Life, Fortune, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and many international journals.
