Closing: National Geographic Presents: The President’s Photographer: 50 years Inside the Oval Office

C.R. Smith Museum Special Exhibit runs through December 1st, 2012 – Admission fee of $3 to $5

Through both iconic and rarely seen pictures of White House residents and insights from the photographers who chronicled them, you 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. Assembled by three-time Emmy Award-winner John Bredar, this exhibition features works by veteran presidential photographers David Hume Kennerly (Gerald Ford), David Valdez (George H.W. Bush), Bob McNeely (Bill Clinton), Eric Draper (George W. Bush), Pete Souza (Barack Obama) and many more.
