Pete Souza – o fotógrafo que luta contra Trump no instagram

leave a comment »

O antigo fotógrafo do Presidente Barack Obama, Pete Souza, muito activo no instagram na época em que o Obama esteve no activo, decidiu, após a vitória de Donald Trump, continuar a publicar as suas fotografias do antigo presidente. Começou uma forma de luta contra o presidente actual.

Colocou a outra conta como arquivo (fotografia abaixo foi na ilha Terceira, na base americana, Base das Lajes).

E, de seguida, começou então de acordo com o que Trump ia fazendo, com uma segunda conta no instagram.


The shot that started it all: Barack Obama talks on the phone in the Oval Office with Vladimir Putin about the situation in Ukraine in March 2014. When Trump moved into the office, he changed the curtains and Pete Souza tweeted this picture along with the message: ‘I like these drapes better than the gaudy new gold ones.’ Photograph: Pete Souza/The White House


O próprio Pete Souza (que é descendente de Açorianos – os avós emigraram dos Açores), deixou o testemunho no conhecido The Guardian.

Inauguration Day 2017 was an emotional day. I had spent eight years visually documenting President Barack Obama’s time in office as his chief official White House photographer, and I was exhausted. I looked forward to a break, but knew I’d miss interacting with him and my White House friends. 

At the time, I hoped Trump would surround himself with competent people, learn on the job and not lead us down a dangerous path. But his presidency has become a reality game show. He does not respect women, minorities or immigrants. To him, a critical news story is “fake news”.

Early in the first week of his presidency, I posted on my Instagram account an innocuous photograph I’d taken of Obama by the Resolute Desk. Underneath I wrote a snarky caption, saying: “I like these drapes better than the gaudy new gold ones” that had recently been installed. I was pissed off that Trump had been elected. I was also appalled by the curtains themselves: the redecorated Oval Office, with its emphasis on gold, made the White House look like his personal palace. In fact, it is the people’s house.

Passou então a fazer uma espécie de comparação com o que Trump andava a fazer nas primeiras semanas de presidência. Assim, publicava fotografias de Obama no mesmo período de presidência.


Donald Trump tweets: ‘WITCH HUNT!’ on 27 February 2018. Pete Souza responds by tweeting this picture with the caption: ‘A different kind of witch hunt – Halloween 2010.’ Photograph: Pete Souza/The White House

“Pete is dropping shade with a comment on drapes.” What is shade? I wondered. During the next few days I posted more photographs of Obama taken during his presidency, using subtle captions that contrasted with something the new president had done. 


Donald Trump tweets: ‘The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling’ on 26 June 2017. Pete Souza responds by tweeting this picture with the caption: ‘On 5 September 2016, President Obama confronted Vladimir Putin about meddling in our election.’ Photograph: Pete Souza/The White House

Dozens of reporters asked to interview me. I turned them down. They did their stories anyway. A few wrote that I was “throwing shade” at the new president. Finally, I Googled “throwing shade” and discovered it’s a “subtle, sneering expression of contempt for or disgust with someone – sometimes verbal and sometimes not”. Yup, that’s what I was doing – throwing shade.

And I kept it up for the first 500 days of the new administration, and I plan to keep going. My comments are often humorous, and I’d even say they are more or less respectful. They are certainly more respectful than the tweets coming from Trump. I also try to make subtle comments with my Instagram posts without directly revealing what the current president has said or done.


Donald Trump tweets: ‘We must keep “evil” out of our country!’ on 3 February 2017. Pete Souza responds by tweeting this picture with the caption: ‘President Obama shaking hands after his remarks in 2016 at the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque and Al-Rahmah School in Baltimore, Maryland.’ Photograph: Pete Souza/The White House

Paparazzi. They're everywhere.

Neste fotografia abaixo, o tão famoso cão de Obama. Na altura em que foi para a White House, as filhas do Presidente eram pequenas, como tal, ele queria uma raça canina que fosse calma para poder conviver com as crianças. Assim, a escolha recaiu no Cão de Água Português.

Surface: Ben Thouard, World’s Best Underwater Surf Photographer

with 3 comments

SURFACE, a ROAM Original, is the story of how award-winning photographer Ben Thouard invented a new perspective of our world—shot underwater from inside a wave looking back at the landscape as never seen before. His love of the ocean, surfing, and windsurfing brought him to the small village of Teahupoo, Tahiti, where he can see the legendary surf break from his backyard. From the crystal clear waters of French Polynesia, his creative vision and desire to do something original took hold. After 15 years of trial and error, failure and success, he persevered to discover his own signature photographic style, as seen in his stunning new book, SURFACE. He hopes this new vision of our oceans, in their most pristine form, will inspire others to protect them. “Through this work, I hope people can realize that we need to take care of our garbage and recycle all of the plastic,” says Ben.


Croácia! Vamos a isto!

leave a comment »

Dos poucos jogos que vi do Mundial, acompanhei mais ou menos algumas equipas que estavam surpreender: Bélgica e Croácia

Infelizmente, a Bélgica não passou e ficou-se pelas meias-finais. Foi pena!

Acho que as selecções merecedoras desta final eram precisamente as duas que referi.

Agora, resta-me esperar pelo jogo da final e que a Croácia seja a vencedor! Seria um feito histórico, uma selecção de um país “pequeno”, com pouco mais de 4.000.000 de habitantes.

Abaixo algumas imagens que marcaram o dia de ontem.

Um grande fotógrafo é assim, fotografa em qualquer circunstância!

O fotógrafo “atropelado” foi beijado por alguns jogadores após o atropelo!

E esta poderá ser também uma das melhores fotografias do Mundial.

1 Million People Follow This Photographer On Instagram, And After Seeing His Pics It’s No Wonder Why

leave a comment »

They say practice makes perfect, so photographer Jason M. Peterson should be pretty close to excellence by now. During the last 25 years, Peterson has been taking black and white pictures, constantly pushing his limits, and his persistent artistic efforts have gained him a whopping 1-million-strong following on Instagram.

“To me, my photos aren’t about black and white at all,” Peterson told My Modern Met. “I am trying to capture human emotion, make the viewer feel something. Black and white helps focus on that emotion—color is one less thing to be in the way of seeing the feeling.”

Peterson is an expert when it comes to bringing out the best in shadows, playing with angles and lines, or simply composing the shot. His portfolio has a huge variety of photos, including cityscapes and street photography. They’re bold and graphic, and the strong visual storytelling that Peterson learned in the advertising world (he works as the Chief Creative Officer for Havas North America) blends with the aesthetics perfectly.

Back to the future: Irina Werning

with 6 comments

Há situações engraçadas… Conhecia duas fotografias deste projecto, mas desconhecia a autora das mesmas, como tal, acabaram por ficar apenas na memória, de tal forma que, agora, partilharam-me no Facebook (pelo facto de adorar Fotografia – a quem agradeço imenso) este projecto. Assim, completo as informações que faltavam:

1- Neste caso, a artista, Irina Werning;

2- Projecto que é óbvio… fotografar as pessoas no futuro, com poses do passado, daí o nome: BACK TO THE FUTURE (& BACK TO THE FUTURE – 2011).

Não sei onde vi as duas primeiras fotos, mas quando as vi, tive uma espécie de Déjà vu…

Demian 1989 & 2010 London

Pancho 1983 & 2010, Buenos Aires

Segundo a artista:

I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future..

Lulu Geraldine 1980 & 2010 Bs Aires
