Dawn Porter‘s new documentary, The Way I See It, looks at the presidencies of Barack Obama and Ronald Regan through the eyes of official White House photographer Pete Souza (seen holding a camera).

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images This story is part of I’m So Obsessed (subscribe here), our podcast featuring interviews with actors, artists, celebrities and creative types about their work, career and current obsessions.

The new documentary The Way I See It looks at former presidents Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan through the eyes of Pete Souza.

During his time as an official White House photographer, Souza captured the profound, intimate, funny and dignified moments of two of the most iconic presidents in modern history.

The Way I See It is directed by Dawn Porter, who also made the wonderful and inspiring documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble.

Both Porter and Souza were my guests on CNET‘s I’m So Obsessed podcast.

During our conversation, Porter explained why she was compelled by Souza and his perspective working for Regan and Obama.

When Souza started photographing Obama, the future president was still a senator.

Over the last three years, the former photojournalist gained attention for having his own opinions about the current occupant of the White House.

Over a lively 30 minutes, Porter and Souza discuss why empathy is important for a leader to have, the passing of John Lewis, the significance of professional athletes protesting the shooting of Jacob Blake and what it’s like having Obama officiate your wedding.

Listen to my entire conversation with Porter and Souza on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.

In each episode, I catch up with an artist, actor or creator to learn about work, career and current obsessions.
