Yes We Did

****

The result is an intimate look at President Obama’s two terms, what it felt like to be a black man photographing the first black president of the United States and the ways, Jackson says, that the former president and first lady maintained their authenticity both on and off camera. “Lawrence has a talent for capturing the big scene, the iconic images that will help explain our times for future generations,” the president writes. “But he also has a unique gift for capturing those quieter moments—the margins of a big event, the pauses in a busy day, some stolen times with Michelle and our girls.”

‘mondobama’

NYT photographer Stephen Crowley’s personal video essay (‘Mondobama’) on the President’s visit to Brazil.

“It’s hard for the 13 members of the press pool, who spent most of the 49 hours in Brazil waiting in vans or in a subterranean holding room, to grasp the context of the events taking place around them. We followed in the “bubble” — 15 cars back in the motorcade — to two speeches and a luncheon toast with President Dilma Rousseff.”

(It’s only about a minute long, and is mainly of his endless travels in the press van – it’s not, after all, a glamorous life!)
