American Politicians: Photographs from 1843 to 1993
by Susan Kismaric
Publisher's Description
This marvelous collection covers the history of political images from Brady's thoughtful portraits of Lincoln to the more staged "photo-opportunities" of the Reagan era, and includes not only professional news photography, but also the work of independents such as Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Elliott Erwitt, and Larry Fink. Not merely a selection of photographs, the book includes text by Susan Kismaric which examines the evolution and use of political imagery, the dissemination of images, and the control of photography by political officials.
