CAPTURING CAMELOT: Stanley Tretick's Iconic Images of the Kennedys is a collection of memorable photos taken by consummate photojournalist, Stanley Tretick.
Tretick was assigned to follow the Kennedy campaign of 1960 and the photographer soon befriended the candidate. When Kennedy took office, Tretick was given extensive access to the White House. Tretick's photographs helped define the American family of the early sixties and lent Kennedy an endearing credibility that greatly contributed to his popularity.
Accompanied by an insightful, heartwarming essay from Kitty Kelley—Tretick's close friend—about the relationship between the photographer and JFK, CAPTURING CAMELOT includes some of the most memorable images of America's Camelot and brings to life the uniquely hopeful historical era from which it emerged.
