Covering Obama's address to Congress

Iris PhotoCollective member, Pablo Martínez Monsívaís covered President Barack Obama's address to the joint session of Congress on Tuesday night. As an Associated Press staffer, he had the difficult responsibility of pool photographer, meaning that he was the only still shooter allowed on the floor, and that his photos would supply newspapers all over the world. 

Washington, D.C. based photographer, John Harrington produced this video for his blog, PhotoBusiness News & Forum. It features interviews with Pablo, New York Times photographer Doug Mills, and USA Today photographer H. Darr Beiser, on how they covered the speech for their publications.
