New work: Art Streiber photographs the Obamas for People magazine

The new issue of People features an exclusive White House interview with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, who—along with Bo, the First Dog—were photographed for the magazine by Art Streiber. “We were scheduled to have 10 minutes with the President and First Lady and Bo, for two setups—the closeup and the wide shot—in the same location,” Art explains. But as often happens with photo shoots at this level, they ultimately had even less time than planned to pose for Art. “Our 10 minutes became eight,” says Art, who of course made it work.

Art worked with Chris Dougherty, director of photography at People; Darrick Harris, a photo editor at the magazine; Inna Khavinson, producer; and Charmion Kinder and Semonti Stephens of the Office of First Lady Michelle Obama.

Here’s a look at the opening spread:
