JFK Remembered Hardcover – September 21, 1993 Book - $5 (Ocean Township)

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. behind-the-scenes portrait of JFK and the Camelot years--published on the thirtieth anniversary of the assassination.
