Obama's White House Photographer Released Book Called 'Shade'

The ultimate troll

If you're familiar with Pete Souza, Obama's White House photographer, then you might already know about his hilarious Instagram trolling. 

 

 

 

 

For the past year, Souza has been releasing photographs of Obama with witty, biting captions aimed at the current U.S. administration. The posts took off and have made him a powerful, popular figurehead in the resistance. He's been using both his skills as a photographer, and his anger and frustration with the current state of the U.S., to stand up and speak out.

 

And now, following the popularity of his bestseller Obama: An Intimate Portrait, Souza will be releasing a second collection of photos entitled Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents.

 

At a recent press release for the upcoming book, Souza said:

 

During the past year, I have been as distressed as anyone by the lies and hate emanating from the current administration. I began to use my personal Instagram account to throw shade at what was happening in the White House. Since then, I’ve been inspired by the comments I’ve received from many people who have posted on Instagram, sent me emails, or talked to me at my speaking events around the country. Many have suggested that I package my photographs and commentary into a book. As that idea becomes a reality, I am excited to once again partner with Little, Brown on this endeavor.

 

The book will compare photos of the Obama administration to the one currently in office, showcasing the two wildly different presidencies.

 

 

 

Pretty sure he wasn’t slandering someone on Twitter.
