When Senator John F. Kennedy began laying the groundwork for a presidential bid, his father Joseph P. Kennedy engaged Jacques Lowe to help craft his son’s public image. Lowe became the younger Kennedy’s full-time campaign photographer, and after JFK’s election in 1960, he documented the Kennedy administration as the president’s personal photographer until 1962. Lowe created this appealing Kennedy family portrait in 1958.
Cuando el senador John F. Kennedy comenzó a preparar el terreno para postularse a la presidencia, su padre, Joseph P. Kennedy, contrató a Jacques Lowe para que ayudara a moldear la imagen pública de su hijo. Lowe se convirtió en el fotógrafo oficial de la campaña de Kennedy, y después del triunfo de este en las elecciones de 1960, llevó la crónica de la presidencia como fotógrafo personal de JFK hasta 1962. Lowe hizo este encantador retrato de la familia Kennedy en 1958.
