For eight years, Pete Souza photographed history. Souza is a Massachusetts native, an alum of Boston University, and he served as the chief official White House photographer for President Obama.

Over the eight years of the administration, Souza took almost 2 million photos of Obama, his advisers and family. And he's collected some of the most iconic photos into a new book, "Obama: An Intimate Portrait."

Souza will be at a Harvard Bookstore event at the Back Bay Events Center, April 26
