Published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's election as?president of the United States, this book 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. Drawing on Stoughton's unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or never before reproduced, and supported by a deeply thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves,?Portrait of Camelot?is an unprecedented portrayal of the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of Camelot's 1,036 days.
