Exhibition Name:

Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe

Description: Jacques Lowe’s intimate photographs of President John F. Kennedy and his family provide a lasting image of Kennedy’s presidency — the “brief, shining moment” now known as Camelot — and reflect the hope and energy the youthful president inspired in the nation. Lowe first began photographing Kennedy in the summer of 1958. Eventually, he would make more than 40,000 photographs of Kennedy, his wife, Jacqueline, and their children, creating an extraordinary chronicle of the last five years of Kennedy’s life. This exclusive exhibit showcases more than 70 photographs and contact sheets. The photos document Kennedy’s rise to power, from his 1958 Senate re-election campaign to the White House. The exhibit also explores how Lowe’s images of the Kennedys were used in the media. A 3-D photograph of Kennedy as he campaigned for the presidential election in Omaha, Neb., in 1959 provides a tactile experience in the exhibit. This exhibit comes with a self-contained monitor with an original Newseum-produced film and interactive kiosk.
