The White House photostream became bland

The White House photostream has become pretty bland since Trump took over as president. It's a pretty stark change from Pete Souza's work at the Obama White house.

I’m making a concerted effort not to pay too much attention to the White House since Trump became president. It isn’t worth the stress. At the same time, I couldn’t help but notice that the White House photostream has become pretty bland.

President Trump's Trip Abroad

In contrast, I loved Pete Souza’s approach to photographing Barack Obama’s presidency. It was very personal and so much more engaging. New photos from Souza were highlights for me.


The photographs of an administration do say a lot about that administration’s tone. Trump’s administration seems to be all about publishing bland photos that don’t give much insight into the president’s personality.

It’s a pity.
