Pete Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and the Director of the White House Photo Office. Previously Souza was an Assistant Professor of Photojournalism at Ohio University, the national photographer for the Chicago Tribune, a freelancer for National Geographic, and an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan. His books include the New York Times bestseller The Rise of Barack Obama, which documents the president’s meteoric ascent from his first day in the United States Senate through the 2008 Pennsylvania presidential primary, and the #1 New York Times bestseller Obama: An Intimate Portrait. Souza is currently a freelance photographer based in Washington, DC, and is a Professor Emeritus at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication.

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.
