"THE STUNNING PHOTOS OF JFK AND HIS FAMILY THAT CAME TO LIFE!"
on November 13, 2012
As a Baby-boomer, graduating high school in 1968, I have followed the Kennedy family in this historical era as I collected several books and photos for many years, from office to tragedy. "Capturing Camelot" has become one of my favorite. It is known that professional photographers have used their expertise to create pictures that speak for themselves, telling their own story as they come to life, while portraying some of the most influential and powerful personalities throughout the world. The Amazing photos included in this book are no exception as flashbacks of the trials-and-tribulations of an uneasy era return. Bestselling author, Kitty Kelley chronicles intriguing essays about the relationship between JFK and photojournalist Stanley Tretick, how they first met, the years spent together and much more. Stanley became a respected friend of JFK, following the Kennedy family through the campaign, and after Kennedy took office. As their friendship became close and trustworthy and highly regarded by several, Stanley was given extensive access to The White House, covering the Kennedy family, helping to define 'The American Family of the 60's.' The photos taken became successful as they contributed to JFK's popularity. These incredible photos became the most memorable and unforgettable images of 'America's Camelot' as they bring life to that historical era. Both the essays and the photos are heartfelt as they define moments in history that could never be forgotten, and some treasured for a lifetime. Powerfully moving, interesting, educational, and enjoyable. Highly Recommended!
