I'm prepared to bet that at some point you'll have seen, probably very briefly, the work of photographer, Jacques Lowe. You just didn't know it.
Following a chance meeting in 1958, Lowe struck up a friendship with a certain John F Kennedy, and a result a trusted working relationship was formed. Lowe was given privileged access to the Kennedy family during the presidential campaign, then JFK's subsequent and all to brief term in office.
It doesn't matter if you have zero interest in US politics in the 1960's, these iconic monochrome frames will have passed before your eyes anyway. Because whenever newspapers and magazines need to illustrate the Kennedy family's legendary, tragic political story, it is usually some of Lowe's work which is featured.
Some of these evocative, priceless images, including some never seen before, have been published in a book called The Kennedy Years. This is thoughtful, intelligent photography with real heft and presence - inspiring to say the least. If you love black and white photography, this is must buy...
