Here’s a short video released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services last month on the work of photographer Chris Smith, who has served as the Secretary’s photographer in the department for 27 years now.
Smith shares about both his journey in photography and some insights into what it’s like to photograph in the upper levels of US government.
Here are some photos Smith has captured over the years:
Smith says in the video that Tom Price is the 7th secretary he has covered during his time in the HHS. Just three days after the video was released, however, Price resigned as secretary amidst growing criticism about his travel habits.
