What would it be like to travel nearly everywhere with the President of the United States, taking photos of him on Air Force One, in the Oval Office, and on family vacations? Starting with President John F. Kennedy in 1961, each President has had a full-time official White House Photographer to document the President’s daily life. As a result of the work of these photojournalists, we have photos of both historic and personal moments, giving us a better understanding of the people who have held America’s highest office.
Come and join us at the Beijing American Center for a screening and discussion of “The President’s Photographer: Fifty Years inside the Oval Office.” Narrated by Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman, this documentary follows the President’s photographers inside Air Force One, backstage at the State of the Union, and into the heart of the West Wing of the White House. The movie will show you how photographers documented amazing moments in history and the personal lives of Presidents such as Obama, Kennedy, Bush, and Nixon. If you enjoy photography or want to learn more about the lives of America’s presidents, you don’t want to miss this movie!
