The Photographer and the President


For history buffs—especifically the legions of loyal Lincoln readers who revere both the breadth of Doris Kearns Goodwin and the narrower studies of Daniel Mark Epstein— this book presents a new angle on the Lincoln legacy, exploring how the president used the nascent medium of photography to shape public consciousness about himself as president and the young nation on the verge of splitting. A fresh take on Lincoln and his legacy, exploring the rich and suggestive dialogue between art, image, and politics in the early days of photography.
