The JKF Hyannis Museum is proud to announce a very special exhibit for 2018
Opening June 1, 2018

This stunning photo exhibit showcases more than 70 intimate and iconic images of President John F. Kennedy, the first lady Jacqueline and their children, Caroline and John, taken by Kennedy’s personal photography Jacques Lowe.

Lowe’s photography of the Kennedys helped create the legend of the Kennedy presidency known as “Camelot”. It offers an inside look at the personal side of the Kennedy family that has never been seen before.

To produce the photos displayed in “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe,” the Newseum digitally scanned and restored more than 70 images to their original color, content and clarity using prints and contact sheets from the estate of Jacques Lowe, John F. Kennedy’s personal photographer. The photos could not be reproduced from the original negatives because Lowe’s negatives had been stored in a vault in the World Trade Center complex in New York and were lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The exhibit marks the first time that many of these images have been seen in their original condition in nearly 50 years.

“Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe” was developed by the Newseum in collaboration with the Jacques Lowe Estate. The Newseum, headquartered in Washington D.C. promotes, explains and defends free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment.
