Why We Still Love B&W Photography
As the country remembers former President George H.W. Bush, so is the man who photographed decades of Bush's life.
David Valdez, Bush's photographer throughout his vice presidency, presidency and beyond, says working alongside Bush and his family was life-changing.
"If that hadn't happened, if I hadn't gone to work for George Herbert Walker Bush, I don't know what I'd be doing in my life," Valdez tells Here & Now's Robin Young.
Valdez's bond with the Bush family is evident in one of his most famous photographs, taken during Bush's vice presidency when he was on a family vacation in Kennebunkport, Maine. Life magazine wanted to send a photographer — the Bush family said no. But Barbara Bush told him to come over to the house early in the morning.
"She was the one that said, 'Well, come on by about 6 o'clock in the morning and let's just see what happens,' " Valdez says. "And so I went up to the house and poked my head in the bedroom door, and there was George and Barbara Bush in bed. Then the grandchildren started coming in and I stood up, took that snap, and that wound up running two full pages in Life, and it's taken on a life of its own."
