Former President Obama is reportedly penning the foreword for his official White House photographer’s forthcoming book.

The ex-commander in chief will write the introduction for “Obama: An Intimate Portrait: The Historic Presidency in Photographs” by Pete Souza, the Associated Press reported Monday.

Souza has said the book, due out in November, will include about 300 images showing Obama “in all facets of life.”


The former White House photographer has garnered a massive following on Instagram with posts that sometimes mock President Trump, contrasting his administration to Obama’s.

It’s not the first time Obama has written a book’s foreword. The former president, a fan of Charles Schulz's comic strip, composed one for the 25th volume of “The Complete Peanuts,” released last year. Obama also wrote the forward for Nelson Mandela’s 2010 book, “Conversations With Myself.”
