55 Best Photos Of Obama By White House’s Photographer Pete Souza 

Pete Souza has been the Official White House Photographer for the last 8 years and he took a lot of pictures of President Obama’s two terms, Souza estimates he will have taken nearly 2 million photographs.

Souza has captured some incredibly powerful, heartfelt and poignant moments of the President over the last 8 years and a gallery of 16 photos has recently gone viral, claiming to be Souza’s personal favorites. Although he has denied this claim, the photos are still amazing.

Since 2009, Souza has compiled an annual “Year in Photos” gallery; a collection of 75-100 of his favorite photos from the previous 12 months. I went through all of the albums and have compiled 55 highlights.
