This week, our Sunday Spotlight shines on Eric Draper, who documented eight years of history as the chief White House photographer for President George W. Bush.


With unparalleled access to the president, Draper captured the full scope of Bush’s time in office — from the intensity of 9/11 and visits with wounded veterans, to quiet moments on his family ranch in Crawford, Texas, or praying with the family of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


“My job was not to be a distraction. My job was to purely document,” Draper told ABC News. “That was a very unique role in the White House … to have that much access to the president … and not to be a participant in the meetings, but to be an observer.”


Draper selected from nearly four million images for his new book, “Front Row Seat: A Photographic Portrait of the Presidency of George W. Bush.”
