LikeMoreOfficial companion to the National Geographic Television Special airing in November 2010, The Presidents Photographer is the intimate story of the men and women who are both visual historians and key links between the public and the Presidents. Like the film, this behind-the-scenes invitation features the images and recollections of the nine professionals who have served as official White House photographers. (President John F. Kennedy appointed the first, Cecil Stoughton, in 1960- all predecessors were with the U.S. Navy or Park Service). Five of the nine are alive today, and in rare personal interviews, they recount the stories behind the remarkable photographs. Expressive close-ups of presidents reveal moments of joy, reflection, and turmoil over public issues and private challenges. Unexpected angles cast new light on historic events. Through both iconic and little-known images, this book offers a fresh perspective on life and work behind the famous facade of the White House.
