Former White House photographer Pete Souza has announced a new book of his photography titled, Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents.
In announcing the book earlier this year, the publisher shared that the book would contrast the two presidents with “unforgettable images of President Obama delivering new power and meaning when framed by tweets, headlines, quotes, and other material from the first 500 days of the Trump administration.”
In revealing the cover via his Instagram, Souza wrote, “If OBAMA: An Intimate Portrait is a coffee table book, then SHADE is an every table book. If you’ve been following my Instagram feed since the last inauguration, then you have an idea what this book is about (but of course there will be some surprises.”
With a drop date of October 16, you can pre-order the new book here.
The photographer, who currently has almost 2 million followers on Instagram, regularly uses the platform to troll Donald Trump via photos from Obama’s presidency and contrasting with whatever is in the current news cycle.
At one point last year, he shared a series of 15 Time Magazine covers captioned: “Someone has a lot of catching up to do.”
If you don’t follow him there, you should. He’s very clever.
Here are a few examples:
Merrick Garland was nominated by President Obama on March 16, 2016, eight MONTHS before the Presidential election. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to give him a hearing. Eleven days after the inauguration, the new president nominated Neil Gorsuch and he had a hearing eight weeks later. Let’s never forget that. Elections have consequences.
