As a young photographer, Jacques Lowe was assigned to photograph and up-and-coming Washington attorney named Robert Kennedy. Mr. Lowe's work impressed the Kennedy family so much that Joseph Kennedy asked that his other son, then U.S. Senator John F. Kennedy, be photographed as well. From that favor granted sprung a very close and personal relationship. As a result, Lowe took over 40,000 photos, including the White House years.
·198 exquisite black and white photographs, hand selected by Lowe
·Photographs accompanied by insightful commentary from the photographer

About the Author:

Jacques Lowe started his career as a contributing photographer to Life, Look, Time, Newsweek, and many other periodicals. From his extensive coverage of President Kennedy, Mr. Lowe's work has appeared on one hundred magazine covers, three major television shows, four books, and a one-man traveling exhibit.

From Booklist:

Lowe, a support staffer in Kennedy's fiercely loyal campaign entourage, was deputized as the candidate's personal photographer. He clicked such good poses for magazine covers, and candids for posterity--of rallies, of family, and of the nail-biting waiting on election night of 1960--that the president-elect told him, "You've done fine so far. Just continue." This adoring album is divided into images from the 1960 campaign and those of JFK exercising power. Black-bordered, black-and-white full-page spreads predominate, imparting a distinctly mournful appearance to this gray volume. Lowe's text identifies the pictured events, such as the West Virginia primary, the Democratic convention, JFK's first cabinet meeting, and his first foreign trip as president. Lowe, an important participant in the myth of Camelot, responded to his boss's trust with many intimate, character-capturing, and celebrated frames, and JFK's adorers will surely savor them. Gilbert Taylor
