Pete Souza - Two Presidents, One Photographer

"Pete Souza: Two Presidents, One Photographer” exhibition visits UA-PTC Windgate Gallery Nov. 9 – Dec. 15

October 20, 2023

Pete Souza: Two Presidents, One Photographer, an exhibit of photographs that showcase 56 of Pete Souza’s photographs Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, will be displayed at UA – Pulaski Technical College’s Windgate Gallery Nov. 9 – Dec. 15.

The gallery opening reception will be on Nov. 9 from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. in the CHARTS lobby.


The iconic photographs of Pete Souza are well known from his tenure as Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama. What many people don’t remember is that Souza was also an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan.

Two Presidents, One Photographer provides us with candid moments that are windows into their humanity. What we see in Souza’s photographs are two Presidents who clearly respected the office they held, and genuinely respected the people they interacted with, no matter the circumstance.

Souza earned a master’s degree in journalism at Kansas State University. He is currently a freelance photographer in the Washington, D.C. area and professor emeritus of visual communication at Ohio University. Souza was the chief official White House photographer for President Obama and the director of the White House photo office. His new book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait, debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.


Windgate Gallery hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Friday, and closed weekends. Admission is free and open to the public.
