NEW YORK (AP) — Books of Obama photographs will be in the news this fall.

A collection of White House pictures of Michelle Obama is coming out Oct. 17, Ten Speed Press told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “Chasing Light” will feature 150 color shots and personal commentary by White House photographer Amanda Lucidon.

“Mrs. Obama is a source of light and inspiration in my life,” Lucidon said in a statement issued through Ten Speed, a Penguin Random House imprint. “She was a mentor to me and so many people around the world. The work she has done with young people, especially girls and underserved youth, has helped me realize that I want to spend my life helping others reach their fullest potential.”

“Chasing Light” arrives three weeks before “Obama: An Intimate Portrait,” a book of Barack Obama pictures by White House photographer Pete Souza. Souza has built a wide following on social media by posting shots of Obama that contrast dramatically with images from Donald Trump’s administration.

    I’m buying both! Pete Souza is a remarkable photographer. I especially like her glam photos of Mrs. Obama.

    To Mr. Hoodie,
    I guess you are happy with Mr. Trump and his dump ass family. You are going to be hurting just like black people from his policy. Good luck on being poor.

    Really are you serious? I have seen enough pictures of horse mouth and her dumbo eared, girl jeans wearing husband on the cover of just about every black newspaper and magazines. I don’t understand the obsession our people have with these two humps. Black people we have more pressing problems, let’s move on and forget about these two clowns.

    I will buy this book.
    SS: I see a lot of women in my area with purses with shiny images of Mrs. Obama in various published photos. It looks like people have taken these images and put them in bendable durable materials and made handbags. So I asked this one lady, where she got the bag, she said it was for a lady she knew with a small boutique. So I said, do you think they got Mrs. Obama’s permission to use her image and is she getting paid? She laughed and said probably not. It’s even possible that Mrs. Obama doesn’t mind.

    Now I imagine this happens every day ALL day, bootlegging isn’t new, but I just feel a certain way when it comes to the Obamas and as cute as those bags are and I want one, I refuse to buy one, same with the t-shirts. And don’t get me wrong I’m not saying I’m “above it”, I’m saying, they are special.
