The Way I See It Gives an Inside Look into Life at the White House

No matter who is sitting behind the resolute desk and is the President of the United States – the public view of the President and their private life are two seperate things. And while the public sees small glimpses of the private side of the the President’s life no one has the access to their day to day life like their personal photographer.

Serving in that role for both President Reagan and President Obama, Pete Souza has spent years with unprecedented access to leaders of our country – from both sides of the aisle that we all wish we had. Not just a fly on the wall, but there for the moments that not only hit our news feeds but also to our social media and in history books and more.

Souza has taken on the job of documenting history with position for both past presidents. But throughout the years, he’s been quiet about his experiences and political opinions. But a few years ago, Souza started to change his stance on staying quiet and started to share images that would counter complaints or statements that are made to upset people.

Outspoken about the current administration, Souza uses his photos to bring a different look inside the White House that we never got to see. The Way I See It Shows a stark opposition to what we’re used to seeing now and how there’s a change in attitude and life in the White House – especially since we’re no longer allowed to see what his happening or see the more human side of the administration.

While The Way I See it is politically based, the documentary gives viewers an interesting look at the evolution of the White House photographer and their role in history. The Way I See It is available on VOD as well in select theaters now.
