America’s forty-third president, George W. Bush, presided
over eight of the most dramatic years in recent history,
from the 9/11 attacks early in his administration to the
worldwide economic crisis of 2008. By his side, recording
every event from the momentous to the intimate, was his
personal White House photographer, Eric Draper. From a
collection of nearly one million photographs, Draper has
selected more than one hundred images of President Bush that
portray both the public figure and the private man.
Front Row Seat presents a compelling, behind-the-scenes view
of the presidency of George W. Bush. Through Draper’s lens,
we follow Bush through moments of crisis that called for
strong leadership, such as 9/11; emotional meetings with
troops in war zones, wounded soldiers at home, and Katrina
survivors; and happy, relaxed times with his wife Laura,
daughters Barbara and Jenna, and parents President George H.
W. and Barbara Bush. We also see Bush at work within his
inner circle of trusted advisors, including Vice President
Richard Cheney, National Security Advisor and Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice, and Secretary of Defense Donald
Capturing moments that reveal the essence of the man, Front
Row Seat is an irreplaceable portrait of George W. Bush.
