The epic hardcover Portrait of Camelot book collects the fascinating photographs of Cecil Stoughton, the very first official presidential photographer. The insightful volume holds pictures never before seen by the public at large and provides a unique look at The Kennedys during their legendary time in the White House. More than a John F Kennedy book, the monumental work is a historical book, both revealing and intimate.
The hardcover Portrait of Camelot book, published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's election as president of the United States, is a revealing and intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official White House photographer. Stoughton's close rapport with the president and first lady gave him extraordinary access to the Oval Office, the Kennedys' private quarters and homes, to state dinners, cabinet meetings, diplomatic trips, and family holidays. The John F Kennedy book, Portrait of Camelot, draws on Stoughton's unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or never before reproduced, and is supported by a deeply thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves, for an unprecedented portrayal of the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of Camelot's 1,036 days.
DVD INCLUDED: packaged with a DVD created exclusively for this book, containing color and black-and-white film footage Stoughton created of the Kennedy family in the White House, in Hyannis Port, and on holidays.
