Award-winning photographer Callie Shell presents an intimate portrait of Barack and Michelle Obama and the guiding principles that defined their time in the White House. While documenting the journey from the Obama's family home in Chicago to the most powerful house in the United States, Shell and the Obamas became friends, swapping stories about their families and sharing tips for coping with life on the road. 66 compelling photographs from behind the scenes, including many previously unpublished, are paired with insightful quotes from Michelle and Barack that reveal their warmth, compassion, and unending commitment to service. Shell’s works are an affecting, deeply personal insight into an extraordinary couple who energized and empowered millions of people around the world.
