Description
While Abraham Lincoln was known as an ugly man, and joked about that reputation, his contemporaries often commented on his striking features—on how animated he became while telling stories, or how at more serious moments Lincoln's face reflected infinite wisdom. We can see that face now only in the somber expressions that he was able to hold for the 60 seconds that early cameras required—"There are many pictures of Lincoln; there is no portrait of him," remarked his secretary John Nicolay. But in this album of 206 tritone photographs, the authors of Looking for Lincoln provide a novel encounter with Lincoln's powerful visage by enlarging dozens of his portraits to life-size, with notes placing each image in the context of his life.
