JFK Tapes - November 12, 1963 Memoir Entry
My Kennedy Years: A Memoir
22 November 2013
By Natalie Cornish
Jacques Lowe was not only President John F. Kennedy’s personal photographer, but also one of JFK’s most-trusted friends.
Having worked as a successful photo-journalist, Lowe’s immediate rapport with JFK as a senator – and later the Kennedy family while in the White House – allowed him intimate access to America’s youngest President both at work and during his downtime.
Lowe followed JFK for five years – on the campaign trail, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, talking with world leaders, enjoying dinner with his wife, Jackie and simply playing in the garden with his children. Lowe’s photographs provide an emotive narrative behind JFK’s short-lived presidency.
Lowe died in 2001. At the same time the photographic archive he had left entrusted to his daughter, Thomasina in the basement of the World Trade Center was also destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.
She has painstakingly restored each of his favourite images. My Kennedy Years: A Memoir (£25, Thames & Hudson) is the result. Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of JFK’s untimely death, it’s a unique and highly-personal record of one of the most enduringly fascinating politicians of the modern era.
