The White House press office regularly sends out official photos of President Obama to show what he’s been up to. Sometimes he’s with his advisers. Sometimes he’s tweeting. Sometimes he’s intensely staring at peculiar machinery.

And sometimes he’s standing in a doorway while a disturbing marble statue looks on in the foreground…
