Follow the chief White House photographer, an iconic rock and roll photographer, and twelve photographers from the Associated Press as they document our world.

Tune in Friday, August 9, 2013 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on WXXI World. The evening begins at 7 p.m. as Rock Prophecies goes behind the ropes and beyond the green rooms to view rock and roll through the eyes of prolific photographer Robert M. Knight. Then at 8 p.m. The President’s Photographer: 50 Years in the Oval Office explores 50 years of presidential photographers who covered it all: upheaval, tragedy, joy — often developing friendships with the presidents they serve. Finally, at 9 p.m. stay tuned as Deadline Every Second follows 12 top photojournalists in eight countries as they cover war, political clashes, financial markets, natural disasters, sports and human interest stories.
