Iconic JFK Moments Through the Lens of Jacques Lowe
In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the untimely death of President John F. Kennedy, the Louisiana Old State Capitol presents "Iconic JFK Moments Through the Lens of Jacques Lowe." This exhibit, running from October 31 to December 21, offers a rare glimpse into the private world of the Kennedy family through the lens of Kennedy's personal photographer, Jacques Lowe.
In 1956, fate brought Lowe together with Robert F. Kennedy during an editorial assignment, marking the beginning of a friendship that would forever link him to the Kennedy legacy. Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, recognizing Lowe's exceptional talent, commissioned him to photograph his "other son, Jack," leading to Lowe's role as the Official Campaign Photographer for John F. Kennedy's presidential bid. Despite declining the White House Photographer's position, Lowe accepted the president's invitation to "stick around and record my administration."
Visitors to "Iconic JFK Moments Through the Lens of Jacques Lowe" will witness a visual journey through the lens of a photographer whose images not only encapsulated a historic presidency but also preserved the essence of an era that continues to captivate the world.
