Introducing an incredible body of work from JFK’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe. Follow ➡️ @GettyFlashback for more stories behind important moments from history. | 📷: Jacques Lowe/The Jacques Lowe Estate/Getty Images
With unprecedented access, Lowe’s photographs of Kennedy cover crucial and unguarded moments from his election campaign and presidency, of life inside the Oval Office and with his family. These historic documents are all the more remarkable for their survival. Lowe’s archive was destroyed when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. These images were salvaged from a bank of contact sheets discovered elsewhere and expertly restored.
