by Mark Shaw
The definitive collection of Mark Shaw's renowned photographs of the Kennedys, featuring many unseen images. For the first time, complete access has been granted to the Mark Shaw Photographic Archive in order to produce this fresh and expanded take on Shaw's classic 1964 work, The John F. Kennedys: A Family Album. Over fifty percent of the material in this beautiful anthology has never been seen before and features the finest reproductions of Shaw's photographs yet seen in print. Shaw shot the Kennedys for the first time for Life magazine in 1959. He developed a close friendship with the family that gave him extraordinary and informal access to their inner circle. His stunning shots from this time capture some of their most intimate and candid moments. Photographs include Kennedy's favourite ever shot of himself, walking alone on the dunes at Hyannis Port, plus images on the campaign trail, relaxing at home with friends, entertaining at the White House, and the sombre days immediately following the assassination.
