Pete Souza

This is a past event

Pete Souza

Presented by The Bardavon with Oblong Books & Music

Pete Souza – former Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and Director of the White House Photo Office – will give a dramatic visual presentation of exclusive photographs contained in his  #1 New York Times bestseller SHADE: A Tale of Two Presidents. SHADE tells the tale of the Obama and Trump years through visual juxtapositions that begin on Inauguration Day and move through the release of the Mueller report. Some call this “throwing shade.” Souza calls it telling the truth. His photographs serve as a rejoinder to the chaos, abuses of power, and destructive policies of the Trump administration. Shade is a potent comment on the state of our nation.

The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
A selection of other titles by the author will be available for purchase.
