Former White House photographer Pete Souza on Wednesday revealed the cover of his upcoming photography book about the Trump and Obama administrations.

Publisher Little, Brown and Company announced “Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents” earlier this year, saying that the book would contrast the two presidents with “unforgettable images of President Obama delivering new power and meaning when framed by tweets, headlines, quotes, and other material from the first 500 days of the Trump administration.”

The cover of the book, which Souza shared on Instagram, features former President Obama wearing a pair of “shutter shades” in the colors of the American flag.


“If OBAMA: An Intimate Portrait is a coffee table book, then SHADE is an every table book,” Souza wrote in his caption. “If you’ve been following my Instagram feed since the last inauguration, then you have an idea what this book is about (but of course there will be some surprises).”

Souza’s first book of photography on the former president, “Obama: An Intimate Portrait,” was published in 2017.

Since President TrumpDonald TrumpUN meeting with US, France canceled over scheduling issue Trump sues NYT, Mary Trump over story on tax history McConnell, Shelby offer government funding bill without debt ceiling MORE’s election, the ex-Obama photographer has used his personal Instagram page to comment on the current administration to his nearly 2 million followers.

Late last year, for example, he taunted Trump, sharing a series of 15 Time magazine covers featuring the Obamas with the caption: "Someone has a lot of catching up to do." Trump had earlier claimed he turned down the chance to be selected as the magazine’s "Person of the Year."

“Shade” is set for release in October.
