Overview

Tipper Gore has been a passionate photographer for many years, but when her husband was elected Vice President of the United States, she began taking more pictures than ever before. Now, in this beautiful and very personal book, Mrs. Gore uses both words and photographs to give us an intimate view of her new life at home, her work as a member of the current administration, and her travels around the world. In a lively introductory chapter, Mrs. Gore offers a wonderfully candid self-portrait. She tells the story of how she became a photographer - receiving her first camera as a gift from her husband, Al, working as a photojournalist for The Tennessean, and gradually discovering that she expresses herself best through the images she captures on film. She writes about the causes that she has cared about most, especially those involving the mentally ill and the homeless. And, with surprising frankness, she describes how being part of a presidential administration has affected her children, her marriage, and her daily life. The centerpiece of Picture This is an inspired collection of more than 120 of her recent photographs, both color and black and white. Mrs. Gore has an unusual gift for catching people at their most natural - witness her photographs of the President and Vice President at work, of men and women from a rich diversity of cultures, and of her husband and children during private moments. She has a keen eye for pictures that tell dramatic stories, as illustrated by her eloquent photographs of starving children in Rwanda and homeless people in America.

Read an Excerpt

"When I'm feeling something intensely, or know that I'm witnessing a significant moment, I often reach for my camera. These past four years have been so inspiring that I've taken more photographs than ever before in my life. Since the 1992 presidential campaign, I've shot hundreds of rolls of film, recording special family moments, important public events, and my travels around the United States and abroad. I look for the picture that tells a story--two old men gossiping in a marketplace in Marrakech; a bride and groom embracing in a public square in St. Petersburg; Al, lying flat on the floor in the presidential palace in Pretoria, getting tips on back exercises from Hillary Clinton; Kristin hugging her father the day she went off to college.

"The role of photography in my life has taken time to evolve. In my twenties, I was trained to use a camera as a tool for communication, a task for which photography is of course superbly well suited. But over the years, I have come to appreciate photography even more as an art form and a means of self-expression. It's not easy to capture an image that has the power to evoke complex feelings. When I do, it's tremendously satisfying. Finally--and most importantly, perhaps --photography is a way of keeping alive that part of myself which is not shared with anybody else." --From Picture This
