Pete Souza: Moments From My Archive

September 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

The flyer for the Pete Souza exhibition that is opening September 11. The flyer show's one of the photographer's photos of a person close to the camera against a desert landscpe.

Ohio University Professor Emeritus of Visual Communication Pete Souza will be giving a presentation and talk focusing on an exhibit of his photographic images on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 7 pm in the Baker Center Ballroom.

The exhibit titled, “Moments From My Archive,” can be viewed at the School of Visual Communication Gallery (140 Schoonover Center) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting September 11, 2023 and ends Sept. 29, 2023.

Souza’s work as an author, academic, and accomplished practitioner of documentary photojournalism has been acclaimed globally. His significance owes to his ethical, professional, artistic, and truthful documenting for posterity the legacies of President Ronald Reagan, President Barack Obama, their families, and other prominent leaders. Souza chose his first public speaking appearance since leaving the Obama White House (Jan. 20, 2009 to Jan. 20, 2017) to be here at Ohio University in 2017.

Souza served as a tenure-track assistant professor of photojournalism at Ohio University before being hired by President Barack Obama to be Chief White House photographer. He served the Obama White House with distinction while serving as a member and representative of our OHIO academic community. His presentation and talk will be in the form of a Q&A session and will highlight his documentary photojournalism beyond his White House tenure.

Souza’s Sept. 12 presentation and talk is free to the public.
