Hope, Never Fear: A Personal Portrait of the Obamas

 

Exhibition duration: Sunday, October 13, 2019 to Sunday, March 1, 2019

 

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tips about coping with life on the road. 66 compelling photographs from behind the scenes, including many previously unpublished, are paired with insightful quotes from Michelle and Barack that reveal their warmth, compassion, and unending commitment to service.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.

Callie Shell is a World Press Photo Award–winning photographer whose work has appeared in magazines, books, galleries, and museums throughout the world. She has covered five presidential campaigns, served for eight years as the official photographer for Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration, and spent over 10 years capturing images leading up to and during Barack Obama's presidency. She lives in South Carolina.
