“A candid portrait of the President during a meeting, juxtaposed with the paintings of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, busts of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln, and the Emancipation Proclamation. It’s a difficult angle to get because I had to sit in front of the closed Oval Office door and hope that no one would open the door and knock me over.” RNS photo by Pete Souza/The White House.
