PRESIDENT OBAMA WHITEHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHER PETE SOUZA TALKS "THE WAY I SEE IT" WITH TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT (979 hits)

Focus Features’ Dawn Porter-directed documentary The Way I See It, about former Chief Official White House Photographer Pete Souza, will premiere on MSNBC on October 9 following The Rachel Maddow Show, three weeks after the pic’s September 18 theatrical release.

In an interview with entertainment journalist and red carpet correspondent Tanisha LaVerne Grant, Souza talks about his journey in the White House.

The doc, which Focus is co-presenting with MSNBC Films, will re-air several times ahead of the November elections.


As Chief Official White House Photographer, Souza had a first-person point of view and unprecedented access to the intimate behind-the-scenes gravitas of POTUS, photographing Presidents Obama and Reagan.  It was a job that gave him a unique vantage point on the nation’s political landscapes. The doc will track Souza’s journey as a person with top-secret clearance and total access to the President to a person who now uses his art as commentary on the current state of the nation.

His past published works of photographs, Obama: An Intimate Portrait, and Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents, both debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller lists. He is a professor emeritus at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication and was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism in 2001 as part of the Chicago Tribune staff.

The Way I See It is an official 2020 selection of both the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.
