Pete Souza spent eight years as President Obama's Chief Official White House Photographer, intimately documenting a presidency of character and integrity. Now, as a concerned citizen, he documents why President Trump is unfit for office, sharing his commentary and photographs with more than 2 million followers on Instagram.
Shade is a portrait in contrasts, telling the tale of the Obama and Trump years through visual juxtapositions that begin on Inauguration Day and move through the release of the Mueller report. Some call this "throwing shade." Souza calls it telling the truth.
These photographs serve as a rejoinder to the chaos, abuses of power, and destructive policies of the Trump administration. Shade is both a potent comment on the state of our nation and an urgent call to act now to bring about a return to better days—the days when Americans had a president they could trust and believe in.
The hardcover edition of SHADE followed the first 500 days of Donald Trump’s presidency. The softcover edition adds 60 new pages where the hardcover ended, adding photos and commentary on hot button issues such as: North Korea, Michael Cohen, Brett Kavanaugh, Immigration crisis, Robert Mueller’s investigation, and Russian collusion.
