About this title


Looks at the history of America's oldest photography company, discusses their traditional style of portraiture, and shows photographs of politicians and celebrities

From Library Journal:

No photography studio in American history has achieved the fame of Bachrach, whose impressive work is here chronicled through informative text and carefully selected photographs. Since Bachrach photographed Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address in 1863, every American president has been photographed by the family-owned studio. The studio achieved its stature in part by presenting its clients in a softly focused and flattering light. The distinctive mood of the black-and-white photographs is intriguing, as is the judicious use of muted color in more recent photographs. Included here are engaging portraits of Joseph Kennedy and family and many other celebrities ranging from Duke Ellington to Meryl Streep. A text by Collins and an introduction by Arthur Schlesinger Jr. are woven among the well-reproduced photographs, making this book as much family history as photographic critique--a definite strength. Highly recommended.
