It’s easy to assume Instagram is simply a place for food pics and post-workout selfies, but Pete Souza is using the social media platform for a more historic purpose. As the Chief Official White House Photographer, Souza has an enormous amount of access to the inner workings of the White House and he’s got a great eye for catching small details, which he shares on his Instagram feed.

Since Souza travels with the President, his feed offers an inside look at Obama's ever-changing schedule, which includes everything from diplomatic ceremonies in India to trips on Airforce One to town hall meetings. Not only is Souza a great photographer, he’s also a great storyteller, and his feed documents both the pageantry and the minutiae of the presidency.
