Capturing Camelot: Stanley Tretick's Iconic Images of the Kennedys breathes life into this compilation of more than 200 photos, many never before seen until now… Kelley's moving narrative, along with the sizable, glossy photographs will surely delight any Camelot aficionado! (Portland Book Review)
A labor-of-love collection of work by the photographer she praises as 'my best friend…a pal without parallel.' … a tribute to a photographer, a president and a time when the former functioned as the world's eyes into the latter. A pleasant mixture of iconic and surprising shots--a photo book that is ultimately as much about the photographer, and the access he gained, as it is about its subject. (Kirkus Reviews)
Tretick's achievement is the masterful construction of legend through careful framing and omission--and teamwork with his subjects. Indeed JFK choreographed much of this work himself…. The opposite of Goldin and Avedon's warts-and-all images, Tretick's work is a noteworthy example of unapologetically romantic American portraiture. (Publishers Weekly)
The most eye-opening celebrity biography of our time. (William Safire on His Way: The Unauthorized Biography of Frank Sinatra)
An extraordinary read . . . great history and a great story told. (Lou Dobbs on The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty)
