As a White House photographer through five presidential administrations, Diana Walker enjoyed incomparable access to the world's major movers and shakers. Many of those portrayed are notables in politics, industry, science, entertainment, and the arts— Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope, Steve Jobs, Eartha Kitt, John Travolta, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Mikhail Gorbachev, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, and more. But Walker also immortalizes the quiet heroism and everyday joys of people who would otherwise remain anonymous —co-workers, homeless people, disaster survivors, and many others.


Going behind the scenes and photographing her subjects, Walker captured presidents and their families in wonderfully candid moments and world leaders during momentous events. Her way of engaging people and inspiring their trust results in portraits that are refreshingly spontaneous and open—giving viewers the feeling that they've met each subject personally.


Throughout the book, photographer and subjects narrate many of the 200 portraits, reminiscing about the experience and providing background for the moment or event. The result is a delightfully layered story, both visual and verbal, told from multiple points of view.
