Donald Trump’s personal influence has earned him the title of TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year—that figure who has had the most influence, for good or bad, during the last 12 months. But not even the Person of the Year gets there alone.
As part of the magazine’s exploration of the President-elect’s influence, TIME commissioned portraitist Nadav Kander—who also shot the cover photo of Trump—to photograph four members of his inner circle.
These portraits, taken at a 66th-floor penthouse at Trump’s busy New York City headquarters, show Vice-President-elect Mike Pence, chief strategist Steve Bannon, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and chief of staff Reince Priebus. The four found time between meetings to prepare for the incoming administration to sit for Kander’s photo shoot.
