Pete Souza’s “Obama: An Intimate Portrait: The Historic Presidency in Photographs” is scheduled for publication this November, his publisher announced this week.

Souza told The New York Times he was selecting the final catalog of 300-plus photographs from a pool of roughly 10,000 images showing Obama “in all facets of life.”

“There are pictures that certainly show him stressing in the Situation Room over major decisions,” Souza said. “But also pictures of him interacting in fun moments with his girls.”


Elizabeth Garriga, a spokeswoman for publisher Little, Brown and Company, told the Times that negotiations for the book began shortly after Obama exited office in January.

Souza has stayed interested in the White House since Obama left office. 

He mocked in an Instagram post the Trump administration's decision not to release White House visitor logs and ripped President Trump over his decision to reverse much of Obama's climate change legacy.

Last week, Souza posted a photo response to former Alaska Gov.
