Last month was the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, an event marked by many ceremonies and documented, beautifully, by one of my favorites, David Burnett, for Al Jazeera America.
Over on Medium, there’s a look into how Burnett used his oldest gear to give the annual meeting of the Association of Lincoln Presenters. Why the old gear?
In the age we live in, bombarded by pictures, I am trying to get the viewer to slow down and look at something. Once that happens, then you got their attention.
Did the images get your attention? I suspect they did.
