ABRAHAM LINCOLN ANIMATIONS

By digitally linking two separate photographs of Abraham Lincoln
— both of which were taken during a single sitting with photographer
Alexander Gardner on February 5, 1865 — it’s possible to bring
a sense of movement to America’s sixteenth President.
(This Photoshop animation was created with the use
of a simple Web-based morph program.)

Two more images from a single sitting with photographer
Alexander Gardner — from November 8, 1863 — lend themselves
to the same basic photo-animation process.

A similar effect can be obtained by digitally linking two separate
photographs of Lincoln which were taken by Mathew B. Brady
on January 8, 1864.

These images of Lincoln were scanned from the book
“Lincoln, Life-Size,” a stunning collection of photographs
from Philip B. Kunhardt III, Peter W. Kunhardt and
Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr.
