Souza captured nearly two million photographs of President Obama, in moments highly classified and disarmingly candid. Now he presents more than 300 of the most iconic photographs with fine-art print quality in an oversize format. Together they document the most consequential hours of the Presidency (including the historic image of 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 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 an example to "be kind and be useful," as he would instruct his daughters.
