Following a popular and successful run in the nation’s capital, the Newseum exhibit “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe” is now on display at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia for a limited run. The Newseum traveling exhibit showcases unforgettable images of public and private moments taken by John F. Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe.
“Creating Camelot” features more than 70 photographs and iconic images of President Kennedy, his wife, Jacqueline, and their children, John Jr. and Caroline. The images were restored from prints and contact sheets by the Newseum after nearly all of Lowe’s negatives from his time photographing the Kennedys were destroyed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. The exhibit also includes a large touch-screen monitor allowing visitors to view more than two dozen of Lowe’s original contact sheets and an original film about Jacques Lowe and the Kennedy family.
“Creating Camelot” was developed by the Newseum in collaboration with the Jacques Lowe Estate. The exhibit is on display at the National Constitution Center through Sept. 7, 2015.
