10. He is quite gifted.

It helps that he has the most gorgeous first family ever as subjects. Their goodness as humans really shine through every photograph.

12. Souza makes nice pictures, as did previous WH photographers.

But I really really dislike handout images from this White House, or any White House:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/12/opinion/obamas-orwellian-image-control.html?_r=0


The official photographs the White House hands out are but visual news releases. Taken by government employees (mostly former photojournalists), they are well composed, compelling and even intimate glimpses of presidential life. They also show the president in the best possible light, as you’d expect from an administration highly conscious of the power of the image at a time of instant sharing of photos and videos.

By no stretch of the imagination are these images journalism. Rather, they propagate an idealized portrayal of events on Pennsylvania Avenue.

14. You are welcome to...

"But I really really dislike handout images from this White House, or any White House:"


...dislike what you please, Susana. However not in the Barack Obama Group. Take it to GD or the Sanders Group, they will love you there.

Bye.
