Bush’s presidency in photographs – stunning


Blogging for the New York Times, filmmaker Errol Morris interviewed the top photographers from some of the world’s top photographic journalism agencies about their picks of photos that capture George Bush through his presidency. Yeah, some are goofy; most are not.

It’s interesting to read the photographers’ takes on their photos, sometimes different views on different photos taken at the same time and place.  Morris asks good questions, the photographers give great answers.

And the photographs are, in total, stunning.

You could capture these photos for a bell-ringer of some sort, if you don’t take them beyond your classroom.  If you don’t capture these photos, especially for history classes, you’ll regret that you didn’t.

Go see, and marvel, and learn.

Here's one photo you probably didn't see in the U.S.: "Tears run from the eyes of President George W. Bush during a ceremony in honor of Medal of Honor winner Marine Cpl.

One Response to Bush’s presidency in photographs – stunning

    Okay, he teared up during a ceremony to bestow a medal on a dead hero; I will admit that he is not a block of wood. This doesn’t change my mind about his competency or his honesty. I get all choked up when I see that “missing man formation” the pilots do (in the movie “The Right Stuff” for instance); that doesn’t make me competent to be President of the Kiwanis Club, much less President of the United States of America.
