Published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s election as president of the United States, this book is a revealing and intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official White House photographer. Stoughton’s close rapport with the president and first lady gave him extraordinary access to the Oval Office, the Kennedys’ private quarters and homes, to state dinners, cabinet meetings, diplomatic trips, and family holidays.
Drawing on Stoughton’s unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or never before reproduced, and supported by a deeply thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves, Portrait of Camelot is an unprecedented portrayal of the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of Camelot’s 1,036 days.

Book Description Abrams, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 277 x 231 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy s election as 35th President of the United States, this book tells the story of the thousand days that Kennedy served as captured by the lens his official White House photographer, Cecil Stoughton, and in the words of bestselling author Richard Reeves. A captain in the United States Army Signal Corps, Stoughton was assigned to photograph Kennedy s inauguration. Kennedy was pleased with the images and requested that Stoughton be made his official photographer. Over the 34 months Kennedy was in office, Stoughton, JFK, and Jackie developed a close rapport, working together to carefully construct the image of the presidency and the first family they wanted to project to the world. Stoughton was given unequaled access to the family both at official functions and private moments, in the White House, and on the family s boat in Hyannisport or at holidays. Together the photographs reveal the behind-the-scenes story of the president, the presidential family, and the careful construction of Camelot. Acclaimed author Richard Reeves provides an introduction to the photographs and captions that provide history and context for the images. He tells not only the story of JFK s presidency but also probes the close collaboration that resulted in images that captivated a nation. Harvey Sawler, who interviewed Stoughton extensively before his death in 2008, contributes a biographical piece on the photographer. The book will also include a DVD of rarely seen and intimate film footage of the first family. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780810995857
