STG Presents and Elliott Bay Book Company welcomes Pete Souza's Seattle Launch to The Moore Theatre on Monday, November 27, 2017.

Ticket includes entry + book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait.
Pete Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and the Director of the White House Photo Office. He'll speak and show images from his new book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait (Little, Brown). This book is the definitive visual biography of Barack Obama's historic Presidency, capturing in unprecedented detail by his White House photographer-and presented in an oversize, 12" x 10" exquisitely produced format, and featuring a foreword from the President himself. The evening's program also includes a performance by a special musical guest.
Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to "be kind and be useful," as he would instruct his daughters. Previously Souza was an Assistant Professor of Photojournalism at Ohio University, the national photographer for the Chicago Tribune, a freelancer for National Geographic, and an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan. His books include the New York Times bestseller The Rise of Barack Obama, which documents the president's meteoric ascent from his first day in the United States Senate through the 2008 Pennsylvania presidential primary. Souza is currently a freelance photographer based in Washington, D.C. and is a Professor Emeritus at Ohio University's School of Visual Communication.
