Santa Fe's Soulcatcher Studio Premiers Obama Photo Exhibit
Intimate and compelling images, aren't they? From Soulcatcher Studio: Soulcatcher Studio, in Santa Fe at The Lofts, is deeply honored to present the world premiere of Callie Shell's exhibition, Barack Obama: Road To The White House. Shell has spent the past two years photographing Obama as a contract photographer for Time magazine.
Shell's book, President Obama: The Path to The White House (Time Books) is currently on the New York Times Bestseller List. Previously she spent eight years at the White House as the official photographer for Vice President Al Gore.
More than any other photographer, Shell has been able to capture the private side of Barack Obama, behind the scenes and unguarded, in places where almost no one gets to see him. In the process she has become what one Obama staffer called “a member of the family.”
It is estimated that to date Shell has captured nearly 400,000 images of the Obama campaign and the events that surround it. This exhibition includes several previously unpublished images, along with many images that have become known around the world.
You can access the online exhibition here.
