Abstract:

No photographer was closer to John F. Kennedy than Jacques Lowe. No photograph has better captured the complexity and personality of JFK, the Kennedy family, and the spirit of Camelot, Now in JFK Remembered, Jacques Lowe presents the definitive photographic portrait of Kennedy and tells the story of what he saw during his years with JFK. Jacques Lowe first became friendly with the Kennedys when he was assigned by three different magazines to photograph an emerging crusader named Robert Kennedy. His work impresed the entire Kennedy family so much that he received a midnight phone call from Joseph Kennedy, who asked Lowe to photograph his other son, Jack, then a U.S. senator. What began as a family favor evolved into the most personal relationship JFK - or any other president since Abraham Lincoln - would ever have with a photographer: Lowe took over 40,000 photos, covering the last five years of JFK's life, including the White House years.

In JFK Remembered, Lowe has chosen 198 of his best photographs; some are classics and others have never before been published. We see Kennedy at work and with his family, at public events, and during private moments. In his accompanying text, Lowe describes how Kennedy allowed him unrestricted access to his campaign for the presidency, and how an unspoken trust developed between them and carried over into the rest of Kennedy's life. In Lowe's photographic memoir, we see the emergence of JFK as a national leader and icon, and we are reminded once more of the magic that was John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
