This is the definitive collection of Mark Shaw’s renowned photographs of the Kennedys, featuring many unseen images. For the first time, complete access has been granted to the Mark Shaw Photographic Archive in order to produce this fresh and expanded take on Shaw’s classic 1964 work, The John F. Kennedys: A Family Album. Over 50 percent of the material in this beautiful anthology has never been seen before and features the finest reproductions of Shaw’s photographs yet seen in print. Shaw shot the Kennedys for the first time for Life magazine in 1959. He developed a close friendship with the family that gave him extraordinary and informal access to their inner circle. His stunning shots from this time capture some of their most intimate and candid moments. Photographs include Kennedy’s favorite shot of himself, walking alone on the dunes at Hyannis Port, plus images on the campaign trail, relaxing at home with friends, entertaining at the White House and the somber days immediately following the assassination.

Mark Shaw (1921–1969) was an American photographer renowned for his photographs of the Kennedys and for his fashion photography. Shaw worked for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle and Life. During his 16 years at Life, he shot 27 covers and over 100 stories. He photographed the rich and the famous, including Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Pablo Picasso, Brigitte Bardot and Pope Paul VI. He was also the first photographer to shoot backstage and in color at the European couture fashion shows. Shaw won numerous awards for his still photography and commercial work, most notably with his Vanity Fair lingerie campaign.
Tony Nourmand is the proprietor of the Reel Poster Gallery in London, from whose collection all the images in this book come.
