Pete Souza has been extremely active on his new Instagram account to the extent that even CNN has taken notice. The former White House photographer for President Barack Obama, Souza's visual political and social commentary are arguably as relevant as ever. His activity and media recognition underscores the power of social media, especially when there’s a tremendous following and story to go with it. His most recent posts make note of current events including refugee camps, specifically of ethnic Albanians displaced from Kosovo, and Supreme Court Associate Justice Nominee Merrick Garland.
As previously reported with the recent appointment of President Donald Trump’s official photographer, Shealah Craighead, Souza renamed and archived his account from documenting President Obama, while creating a new account using PeteSouza. Souza’s work is remarkably intimate, personal, and even more so now that he is self described as “TBD” according to his Instagram profile as of this writing.
