As far as photography jobs go, it doesn’t get much better than being the personal photographer to the President of the United States. During his tenure in that position, Jacques Lowe amassed an archive of over 40,000 negatives.

Tragically, all but 1,500 of the remaining negatives in storage were destroyed during the attacks on 9/11. A team of seven imaging specialists spent 600 hours restoring the photographs, which are now on display in New York.
