Exhibit Description

During the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the White House News Photographers Association (WHNPA) spent some of their rare free time sorting through uncatalogued and un-digitized images that were taken by WHNPA members over the last 100 years. Thousands of negatives, original prints from previous years’ ‘Eyes of History®’ still photography and video contests, newsreel tapes, award books, newsletters, and scrapbooks were identified and organized.

Drawing from that wealth of material, a team of photographers and photo editor members selected 50 of the most compelling, indelible, or seldom seen images captured by our members over the last 10 decades to be featured in this exhibition.

The White House News Photographers Association (WHNPA) was formed 100 years ago, in 1921 by still and newsreel photographers for the protection and promotion of photographers’ interests in visually documenting the business of government.

Members of the WHNPA work for the most respected news organizations in the world and hold numerous Pulitzer, Emmy, NPPA, Peabody and Murrow awards.
