Grace and dignity is at the forefront in the new documentary, The Way I See it.
The touching and sometimes emotional film focuses on Pete Souza. Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer to both President Obama and President Reagan.
Souza had complete access to President Obama and his family while they were in the White House for eight years. There are so many wonderful and memorable pictures here. But one of the most iconic photos is of Obama bending over for a 5-year-old boy. The boy asked him, “Is my haircut just like yours?” Obama let the young boy feel his hair, and Souza got a shot of this precious moment.
Souza’s once objective lens switched to that of an outspoken critic after Donald Trump took office. Souza used his personal Instagram to post photos from Obama’s terms. He contrasts Obama with the rhetoric, policies, and tweets coming from Trump and his administration.
Souza’s shady posts earned him internet acclaim, a second book deal, and now this new documentary.
