Lincoln's personal secretary John Nicolay once said "There are many pictures of Lincoln, [but] there is no portrait of him." That may be true, for the enigmatic man was hard to capture in a single image. But in all of the images-from the youngest that survive of Lincoln in his 30s, his "wild Republican hair" flying, to the oldest, when the strains of his extraordinary life show clearly-a full and often surprising portrait does emerge. Combined with his letters and the words from commentators of his time, a full and often surprising portrait does emerge. That portrait is in these pages, and you will come away with a new understanding of this essential American. §Here is the definitive illustrated biography of Abraham Lincoln, including for the first time every one of the 130-plus photographs that were taken of him, plus a vast photographic record of his times: The country when he came to lead it, the country when it split, the Civil War, and the extraordinary response to his death (the funeral train; the wakes; the mourning). This is the LIFE Book that has been waiting to happen, combining everything we do best-deal with history, deal with photography accurately and with insight, popularize what others might present as a dry topic.§Photographic biographies of Lincoln, done with the authority that LIFE can bring to bear, are scarce or non-existent. These are not just the famous Mathew Brady pictures. These are the early daguerreotypes, the "snapshots" from Gettysburg, the pictures of Lincoln communing with the troops. More than 130 photographs of Lincoln exist, and LIFE Books will include each one of them. There is photography of other events, including the funeral train.§This book will also include the best photography of the age: The Civil War, Washington D.C., America in the 1850s and '60s. This subject opens a door through which LIFE can look at a nation being documented by the camera for the very first time. That is the brilliant part of this book: When Lincoln came on the scene, photography was first coming into its own, and its largest successes in the era were America.

LIFE was in its heyday in the 1950's and 60's, when Marilyn was at the peak of her fame. In ten years (between 1952 and 1962) LIFE put her on the cover six times. Had she lived, she might well have challenged Liz Taylor's supremacy and her close connection to LIFE magazine.§§Central to Marilyn's mystique has always been her love life - filled with rumors, romantic entanglements and multiple marriages, all before she died prematurly at the age of 36. Within its pages, LIFE captured everything from her flirtations with co-stars to her genuine affection for her husbands to her tragic divorces. All three of her marriages (two famously to Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller), ended in divorce, and she was rumored to have multiple affairs, including one with JFK.§§From famous pictures such as Marilyn singing "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy to lesser known shots such as those from her divorce proceedings with Joe DiMaggio, this book will feature both iconic and rare photography and provide fans of Marilyn with a definitive summary of her many romances.

Lola Alvarez Bravo ISBN: 9781931788946 Autor: Ferrer Elizabeth Rok wydania: 2006-09-25 Ilość stron: 176 Oprawa: twarda Format: 279 x 244 mm This first comprehensive monograph in English for Mexico's first major woman photographer tracks a career equally exceptional for its remarkable range and for its compelling quality. Lola Alvarez Bravo explored her calling through photojournalism, commercial work and professional portrait-making, even as she was creating intensely personal images of people, places and things throughout her native Mexico. In addition, she played a vital role in the Mexican cultural scene as an inspiring teacher, a friend of innumerable artists (many of whom she photographed), and as the owner of a prestigious gallery that presented the first solo show by her friend Frida Kahlo, the subject of some of Alvarez Bravo's most powerful portraits. Although some of her photographs reflect the influence of her husband, Manuel Alvarez Bravo--they shared the same cameras and often the same roll of film--Lola had achieved her own aesthetic by the 1940s and 50s, concentrating on two particularly vivid bodies of work, portraiture and street photography. In these two disciplines she found a way to reveal a lyricism in the world around her, producing quiet reveries on life lived in the moment. This first English-language book to encompass the full range of her work includes previously unpublished images and several of her little-known photomontages.
