Justin Trudeau's Photographer Documented Him During 2021 & The Photos Show What He Went Through

As 2021 comes to a close, Justin Trudeau's photographer shared a behind-the-scenes look at what the prime minister went through during the year.

Adam Scotti, who documents the prime minister, posted a year in review on December 28 that gave insight into Trudeau's political life as he worked from home, went back to his office, ran in an election, met with politicians from around the world and even more.

"I have been fortunate to have a front-row seat to history," Scotti said about working with the prime minister this year.

Here are 10 photos of Trudeau from Scotti's year in review for 2021.

Throughout 2021, Scotti got quite a few photos of Trudeau with his head in his hands like this one when he was briefed before a press conference in Ottawa on March 5.

After coming back to Canada from the G7 summit in the U.K. on June 15, Scotti captured Trudeau laughing right before he got a COVID-19 test in Ottawa. He said it was one of the most painful tests they had taken.

Scotti shared this photo of Trudeau crossing a street in Ottawa on October 13 and said that the prime minister "walks at an inhumane pace." If you want evidence of that, he said to look at how everyone in Trudeau's detail is running while he's just strolling.

While visiting Washington in November, Scotti set up for a silhouette shot of Trudeau and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris with the Washington Monument in the background when the candid moment of his putting his head in his hands and her laughing happened.

One of Scotti's last shots of the year was Trudeau speaking with staff before he got on a phone call with the premiers about the Omicron variant on December 14.
