We have ourselves a little world-premiere here. Our friends over at Reel Art Press, who also did the epic book The Rat Pack, are releasing a stunning new publication about the Kennedys and have offered us the world pre release scoop.
The Kennedys is the definitive collection of photographer Mark Shaw. For those who had never heard of Shaw (like ourselves): Shaw (1922-1969) was an American photographer renowned for is photographs of the Kennedys and his fashion work. After photographing the Kennedys in 1959 for Life magazine he developed a close friendship with the family that gave him informal access to their inner circle. This publication, with 50% unseen images, includes John's favorite ever shot of himself, images of the campaign trail, John and Jacky relaxing at home, entertaining at the White House and the sombre days immediately following JFK's assassination. This was already a MENDO Classic before we got the actual printed edition.
