Jacques Lowe: My Kennedy Years - an intimate archive of a political rock star.

To mark the 50th anniversary of John F Kennedy's death Proud Gallery, Chelsea are showing a wonderful exhibition of intimate, beind-the-scene images of JFK and his family.

Jacques Lowe became the Kennedy's personal photographer in the mid 50s after turning down an official post as White House photographer. The 28 year old was given full access to the day-to-day life of the president, at work, at home and at play. He took over 40,000 images during this time but unfortunately all the negatives were destroyed in the 9/11 attacks leaving only these images printed by Lowe before his death in 2001.

The exhibition runs until November 25th and there's an accompanying book, 'My Kennedy Years: A Memoir by Jacques Lowe' published by Thames & Hudson for those who can't make it in person.
