JFK EXHIBIT OPENS ON THE CAPE

See intimate behind-the-scenes photos of John F. Kennedy and his family, taken by Kennedy’s personal photographer, during a new exhibit that opens at the JFK Hyannis Museum May 21, called “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe.” Lowe’s iconic images helped create the legend of the Kennedy presidency, which became known as Camelot. The exhibit, which runs through Dec. 1, features 70 images. The original negatives of nearly all of the photos on display were lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Lowe stored more than 40,000 Kennedy photos in a World Trade Center bank vault, which was destroyed. The interactive Newseum in Washington, D.C., spent more than 600 hours restoring the images. An exhibit commemorating Robert F. Kennedy opens July 2, marking the 50th anniversary of his death.
