From Pete Souza, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Obama: An Intimate Portrait, comes a potent commentary on the Presidency -- and our country. As Chief Official White House Photographer, Pete Souza spent more time alongside President Barack Obama than almost anyone else. His years photographing the President gave him an intimate behind-the-scenes view of the unique gravity of the Office of the Presidency -- and the tremendous responsibility that comes with it. Now, as a concerned citizen observing the Trump administration, he is standing up and speaking out. Shade is a portrait in Presidential contrasts, telling the tale of the Obama and Trump administrations through a series of visual juxtapositions. Here, more than one hundred of Souza's unforgettable images of President Obama deliver new power and meaning when framed by the tweets, news headlines, and quotes that defined the first 500 days of the Trump White House. What began with Souza's Instagram posts soon after President Trump's inauguration in January 2017 has become a potent commentary on the state of the Presidency, and our country. Some call this "throwing shade." Souza calls it telling the truth. In Shade, Souza's photographs are more than a rejoinder to the chaos, abuses of power, and destructive policies that now define our nation's highest office. They are a reminder of a President we could believe in, and a courageous defense of American values.… (mais)

I found this book immensely enjoyable, frustrating, upsetting, etc. Not because of anything Souza wrote or photographed but simply some of the subject matter. That is alright. A person should experience the full range of emotions when reading this content. My only regret is that I haven't been following Souza's twitter posts for the past four years. ( )

After a brief introduction, the book consists of, on the left-hand page, a Trump tweet and/or a headline and excerpt of a news article (most often from the New York Times, Washington Post, or the Guardian), and, on the right-hand page, a photo of Obama, captioned by the author, juxtaposing with the content on the facing page. For example, when Trump tweets "WITCH HUNT," the accompanying photo shows Obama at the White House, greeting a trick-or-treater dressed up as a witch. As the author writes in his intro, in the early days of the Trump administration, Souza posted photos of Obama, "using subtle captions that contrasted with something the new president had done" - fans on Instagram called it throwing shade.

Some of my favorite photos:

p. 97 Michelle and Barack Obama from behind in silhouette, watching Fourth of July fireworks

p. 107 Obama leaving Jamaica in 2015, waving goodbye before boarding the plane; a rainbow arcs across the sky behind him and seems to be coming from his hand.

p. 145 the Resolute Desk, with a plaque that reads "Hard things are hard" ( )

Pete Souza is a delight. This book made me really miss Barack Obama. ( )

You may have heard the term "throwing shade." I had, but wasn't sure what it meant. According to Pete Souza, official photographer during the Obama presidency, it means, "a subtle, sneering expression of contempt or disgust with someone." Hence, the name of the following book, a collection of Souza's photographs.

Pete Souza was Obama's official photographer during his presidency. As many of us, he was dismayed when Trump won the 2016 election. He has since been periodically been posting photographs taken during Obama's presidency to remind us of what we have lost. Many were posted without explanation or label, and may have seemed random. In this book, he presents a sampling of some of the photographs he has posted, and also includes the Trump tweet, statement, news article or other action that inspired or compelled him to post the particular photo in question. The impetus for his publication of the photos hasn't previously been revealed, and the connection was sometimes obscure, often snarky, and always on point. I found this to be an uplifting book, but sad in that it really brings home how far we've fallen.

Some examples:

--Obama shaking hands with an awestruck young cub scout; posted after Trump's disgraceful speech at the Boy Scout convention.

--Obama holding a glass of water with one hand; you can guess what instigated this.

--Bo (the Obama's dog) sitting in Obama's Oval Office chair; Bo never "leaked" in the White House.

--Photo of the secure iPad on which Obama received his daily briefings; posted the day after Trump met with the Russian ambassador and other Russians in the Oval Office (the day after firing Comey) and revealed classified information to them.

A nice diversion.

I mean, this is a NOT VERY SUBTLE clap at the current president.
It's so good. And awful. Just...well, mostly a comparison of how different the two are, and the difference.....flooring. I can't believe it. I miss Obama so much. ( )
