White House Bloggers: Brooks Kraft

Time Contributing Photographer

White House Photo Blog


Time magazine's White House photo blog, published since September 2006, is designed "to show a little bit of life in the bubble," explains its creator, Brooks Kraft. His offbeat, detailed and elegantly impromptu images from the White House mix with his colleagues' images from the campaign trail.

Kraft explains that he wants to show the details of people and events surrounding a president and draw viewers into the rhythms of the White House, rather than letting the president always fill the frame. "At Walter Reed [Army Medical Center] last summer, I went with Bush into the physical therapy room," he said. "I took a picture of an Army soldier who was missing a leg, together with his girlfriend or his wife. They looked despondent; they were waiting to meet the president. And way in the background, you could just see Bush." The majority of the photography found on the Time Web site was shot to be published online.
