Capturing Camelot: Stanley Tretick’s Iconic Images of the Kennedys The Schumacher Gallery 1/19/2015 1:00:00 AM
When John F. Kennedy was elected to the White
House in November 1960, the American people embarked on a journey of 1,000 days into a
mythical world that former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy would recall as
Camelot. Photojournalist Stanley Tretick, who was given extensive access to the
White House, captured images that evoked the youth, vigor and glamour of the
Kennedy era. Photographs he took of the president relaxing with his children
lent Kennedy an endearing credibility that greatly contributed to his
popularity. Capturing Camelot reflects the
magic of an era that continues to inspire affection and nostalgia. Copyright,
