Author Event with Lawrence Jackson, Official White House Photographer for Barack Obama

Please join us for the evening as we welcome, Lawrence Jackson, Master Photographer and an Official White House Photographer for eight years under President Obama.

Jackson imbues his images with a warmth and nuance that makes them truly special. Representing both historic occasions and quieter moments, the collection—which includes never-before-seen pictures of the former first couple—captures and celebrates the true spirit of the Obama years. Annotated with stories and reflections by Jackson, Obama, and others, here are photos from the 50th anniversary of the Selma march alongside pictures of Obama joking with kids, shooting baskets, talking to celebrities, greeting visitors, and chatting with White House staff members.

"Eight years in the White House went by so fast. That's why I'm so grateful that Lawrence was there to capture them. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do."

—From the foreword by Barack Obama
