David Wiegers
Photographer
David Wiegers is a life-long Lincoln buff and accomplished photographer. Wiegers, who now lives in Gurnee, Illinois, grew up in Decatur, Illinois, and has had an abiding interest in Abraham Lincoln ever since his parents packed him and his 5 brothers and sisters into the back of the family’s Ford Country Squire station wagon for the obligatory trip to visit Mr. Lincoln’s hometown of Springfield, IL. Coupling his long time love of photography with his near obsession to photograph the entire body of Lincoln sculptures and monuments, Wiegers has spent nearly15 years and driven and flown thousands of miles across 30 states photographing and researching all the images of Lincoln that he could find. His 30th anniversary vacation to Hawaii in 2007 was scheduled so that he could photograph a statue near Honolulu.
