President Barack Obama’s Chief Official White House Photographer, Pete Souza, released his annual ‘Year on Instagram’ photograph collection on Monday.
All 58 of the photographs selected from Souza’s Instagram account were shot on an iPhone, though the complete feed features images taken with Canon, Sony, Nikon and Leica cameras.
For this year’s ‘Year on Instagram’ selection, Souza decided to feature only square photos that had been taken on an iPhone, as the format is the photo-sharing site’s iconic feature.
He shared in a Medium post,
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, clearly approved of Souza sanctioning of the iPhone’s camera, tweeting a response calling the photography “stunning.”
The selection features Obama and images shot around the White House’s grounds, Air Force One and seasonal events, using various techniques. More candid shots of Obama are to be released on Souza’s Instagram feed next week.
Souza will soon release a ‘Year in Photos’ collection featuring images shot solely on DSLRs rather than iPhone, some of which have not been previously released.
