Eye On Nixon: A Photographic Study of the President and the Man
Eye On Nixonis not meant to be a photographic history of the Nixon Administration; nor is it an effort to show everything President Richard Nixon has done or everywhere he has been. Julie Nixon Eisenhower presents a vivid picture of her father as a man—doing his job as President, but more than that, being the kind of man she knew him to be—kind, thoughtful, shy, direct, humorous.
There definitely is a sense of buoyancy, a feeling of hope, an assurance that "tomorrow will be better" that runs deep in my father's personality. It is this sense of joy of living and confidence that I have tried to capture through photographs. What my father calls "the life of a driving dream" is good for a person, it is good for a family, and I like to think it is good for a country.
