THE PRESIDENT'S PHOTOGRAPHER: 50 YEARS INSIDE THE OVAL OFFICE

Produced and traveled by the National Geographic Society

July 13—October 15, 2016

Through both iconic and rarely seen pictures of White House residents and insights from the photographers who chronicled them, visitors will be transported through presidential history, from photos made when the first official presidential photographer was hired in 1963, to today’s unprecedented coverage of Barack Obama. Throughout we are continually reminded of the power of the still image as a tool for understanding our own history. This exhibition of 50 framed and labeled prints features works by many veteran presidential photographers.

Alongside this National Geographic collection, several little-seen photos of presidential visits to Macomb Community College will be on display.
