During his second year in office, US President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, ushered Brett Kavanaugh through a bitter, divisive Supreme Court nomination process, and continued his fight for a wall along the southern US border.

White House press photographers often have a front-row seat to history, covering the President’s every move. Their images help shape our memory and understanding of what happened.

“Covering politics has always felt to me like photographing a live theater production — the actors and stage are usually set in a familiar way,” Reuters photographer Jonathan Ernst told CNN. “But even if you’ve seen a specific play many times, there is always the possibility that there will be something exciting or new.”

Despite the well-orchestrated performances, the unexpected and surprising can always reveal itself. As Associated Press photographer Jacquelyn Martin said, “Formerly ho-hum departures and arrivals have turned into full-out press conferences, and the demand for imagery is intense.”
