With Donald Trump the president-elect, it’s the end of an era for the first African American President of the United States.

Barack Obama being elected into power in 2008 on a wave of hope, optimism and enthusiasm, has garnered both criticism and praise throughout his eight years in office.

As Obama bows out from what is largely considered to be the most important job of the world, here’s a look at some of the greatest pictures of his presidency.

The 55-year-old may have gained a few more grey hairs, but as the 44th President of the USA, he also helped shape the USA into what it is today.

Many are taken by White House official photographer Pete Souza and his team.

Pete Souza, the Chief Official White House photographer, has taken approximately two million pictures of President Barack Obama.

He has captured the Commander-in-Chief in all situations – whether it is relaxing with his family or sitting in the situation room, waiting to hear the outcome of the May 2011 mission to kill Osama Bin Laden.

Many of the snaps include him interacting with children, or in romantic situations with his wife Michelle.

Chief Official White House photographer Souza’s ‘Year in Photos’ albums on the White House Flickr account show his favorites and go back to 2009. Fifty-five images of the president, seen here, were compiled by Twisted Sifter. http://twistedsifter.com/2016/07/pete-souza-white-house-photog-favorite-obama-photos/
