While our favorite FLOUTS, Michelle Obama, already has a sealed book deal a former White House photographer is featuring our former first lady in a new collection of photographs.
The collection will feature 150 color photographs with many never before seen photos. The former White House photographer, Amanda Lucidon served as the only female photographer throughout both of Obama’s terms from 2013-2017.
Ten Speed Press, a smaller publishing group within Crown Publishing Group, announced the upcoming release of the collection entitled, Chasing Light: Michelle Obama Through the Les of a White House Photographer. However, sources say the collection will be released Oct. 17th!
“‘Mrs. Obama is a source of light and inspiration in my life,’ says Lucidon in a statement.’ She was a mentor to me and so many people around the world. The work she has done with young people, especially girls and underserved youth, has helped me realize that I want to spend my life helping others reach their fullest potential.'”
We are anxiously waiting for the new collection, as we can’t wait to see our favorite first lady in all of her glory. #BlackGirlMagic
