About The Book:

One Woman News Photographer’s Journey with History Makers is a book that offers an eyewitness account to some of the most significant moments over the past 30 years in the nation’s capitol. As a news photographer, I have been honored to have had a front row seat to record history through the lens of my camera. These series of notable pictures along with behind the scenes short stories will engage the reader from the perspective of the person behind the camera.

About The Author:

BEFORE SHE JUMPED out of an airplane at 13,500 feet and earned her first-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Christy Bowe, a third-generation Washingtonian, was thrown out of Catholic school in the ninth grade for refusing to conform. She briefly attended Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland and the University of Missouri Photo Workshop in Carthage, Missouri. Most of her education has been “on the job.” In pursuit of her passion for photography, Christy earned her way into the small, elite circle of White House press photographers. With support from celebrated White House reporter the late Sarah McClendon, Christy started ImageCatcher News Service. She is represented by Getty Images, Zuma Press and Polaris Images. Her pictures have been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. Christy has also been featured in books by Wadsworth Publishing and McGraw-Hill, and Little Brown most recently in an autobiography of Justice Stevens. Her corporate clients have included Harley Davidson, The National Science Foundation, The National Press Club and The National Organization for Women. Christy is currently a member of the White House Press Corps, House and Senate Press Photographers’ Gallery, and White House Correspondents’ Association and White House News Photographers’ Association. She has lectured at American University, Montgomery College, and George Mason University. She has ten images preserved in the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Christy resides in Bethesda, Maryland, and continues to work as a photojournalist, currently covering her fifth U.S. President, Joseph R. Biden. https://www.imagecatchernews.com/

Book Blurbs: 

“The sparkle in Christy Bowe’s eye and her calm demeanor belie the intensity with which she works. ‘Eyes That Speak’ is a valuable addition to the canon of political photography.”STEPHEN CROWLEY Former New York Times staff photographer, named Photographer of the Year by the White House News Photographer Association and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize along with his team at the New York Times.

“I’ve long believed that photojournalists never get enough credit for their journalism. They are much more than picture-takers. Christy Bowe’s ‘Eyes That Speak’ explains that concept better than I ever have. She knows when to take the perfect shot that will capture the issues at hand, the politics at stake and the humanity that underlies all of it.”DANA PERINO Former White House Press Secretary to former President George W. Bush

“‘Eyes That Speak’ is a poignant journey through hallowed halls of history. It was powerful to view such a comprehensive collection of world leaders taken by photojournalist Christy Bowe. Her long-term dedication to documenting world leaders comes together in this book, which captures compelling moments and offers intimate stories behind the images. Her tenacity is testimony to producing a lasting legacy of visual storytelling.”CAROL GUZY, ZUMA PRESS Four-Time Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photojournalist
