Joe Biden's White House Photographer Publishes Book Of Images From Obama Years

Book cover for "Biden"
Voracious Publishing

David Lienemann was Joe Biden's official White House photographer for all eight years of his Vice Presidency, and like his former boss Pete Souza, David was granted unfettered access to Biden, which resulted in nearly a million compelling photos.

In both previously published and never-before-seen photos, his new book, "Biden: The Obama Years and the Battle for the Soul of America." shows the now-presidential candidate both in the public eye and behind the scenes.

David Lienemann is an editorial and lifestyle photographer based in New Mexico. He spent 8 years documenting visits to 47 states and 64 countries, making photographs of moments both grand and intimate. Before coming to the White House, Lienemann covered the 2008 presidential campaign for clients including the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Associated Press, and Getty Images.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
