WHAT: Just days before the launch of Season 5, House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Michael Kelly were photographed in character by former Chief Official White House photographer for President Obama and Ronald Reagan, Pete Souza, around Washington, DC. The shoot, showcases a day in the life of President Frank Underwood, following him and Chief of Staff, Doug Stamper, to some of the Capital's most iconic spots. “It was a pleasure working with Kevin and Michael and photographing them around some of D.C.’s most recognizable locations. Whether photographing the real President or a fictitious presidential character, it’s an exciting experience.”

Spacey attended in-character alongside Gallery Director, Kim Sajet, and members of the actual White House press corps. The portrait of House of Cards’ President Frank Underwood by British artist Jonathan Yeo was commissioned by the museum, which houses the only complete collection of presidential portraits outside of the White House.
