Le clan Kennedy par Jacques Lowe Beau livre Paru en 2003 Les photographies des Kennedy par Jacques Lowe sont devenues le symbole d'une p?riode qui reste ? jamais grav?e dans le c?ur des Am?ricains. ? la mort de Lowe, certains observateurs ont affirm? que ses images avaient contribu?es ? cr?er un mythe idyllique. Des 40 000 photographies des Kennedy prises par le photographe, seules quelques centaines ont ?t? montr?es et tous les n?gatifs, qui ?taient entrepos?s dans un coffre du World Trade Center, ont ?t? d?truits le 11 septembre 2001.
Tres rare cliche vintage representant:
? Les soeurs de Jacqueline Lee Bouvier - 1ere dame - et John Kennedy . ?
Jacqueline Lee Bouvier ?pouse Kennedy, puis Onassis, surnomm?e ? Jackie ?, n?e le 28 juillet 1929 ? Southampton (New York) et morte le 19 mai 1994 ? New York, est une personnalit? am?ricaine. En sa qualit? d'?pouse du 35e pr?sident des ?tats-Unis, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, elle est la Premi?re dame des ?tats-Unis du 20 janvier 1961 au 22 novembre 1963 lorsque son ?poux est assassin? ? ses c?t?s en traversant les rues de Dallas. Gr?ce ? son ?l?gance, sa simplicit? et sa beaut?, elle devient l'une des Premi?res dames les plus populaires et les plus photographi?es. En 1968, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy ?pouse l'armateur et milliardaire grec Aristote Onassis, ce qui lui vaudra le surnom de ? Jackie O. ?.
Tirage original d epoque, considere comme vintage, donc tirage contemporain de sa prise de vue. Le cliche est pris le photographe et tire sous son controle. Les negatifs a cette epoque etaient sur film souple et le tirage se faisait avec agrandissement.
Epreuve tiree sur papier argentique glace de format 17 / 25,7 cm. Original des annees 1960 - 61.
Jamais un pr?sident des Etats-Unis ne fut autant photographi? en famille. Des clich?s glamour, des images de bonheur intime, dont l'h?te de la Maison-Blanche fit une arme politique redoutable. Et dont les r?v?lations sur la vie priv?e du clan Kennedy permettent de mesurer aujourd'hui le poids de secret et de mise en sc?ne
En deux phrases, JFK a r?sum? un style. ?Ich bin ein Berliner?, ? Berlin, devant le Mur. ?Je suis le type qui accompagne Jackie Kennedy?, ? Paris. La premi?re consacra Jack en mythe, la seconde c?l?bra Jackie en ic?ne. Un mythe a besoin de mourir. Apr?s l'assassinat du 22 novembre 1963 sur Dealey Plaza, ? Dallas, l'?ditorialiste Mary McGrory d?plora ?la fin de Camelot [royaume parfait du roi Arthur]?. Ch?re Mary, Camelot n'a jamais exist?. Un r?ve d'innocence...
Le mythe s'est effiloch? sous les griffes des v?rit?s, l'ic?ne a fini, ainsi que l'aurait pr?dit de Gaulle, ?avec un p?trolier?. Fini, pas tout ? fait... Un cancer de la lymphe montra son courage et redora l'image de Jackie K. devenue Jackie O., deux mots qui furent aussi l'enseigne d'une bo?te branch?e de New York. Les ic?nes brillent plus de n?on que d'or ? l'?poque d'Andy Warhol.
Jeunesse, adversit?, rien que des images... Regardez ces photos. Des instantan?s? Instants vol?s comme des baisers? ?Des mises en sc?ne?, avoua le photographe Jacques Lowe, pr?f?r? du ?clan Kennedy?. Une famille qui inventait la politique spectacle. Jamais un s?nateur, un candidat aux primaires, puis ? la pr?sidence, jamais le chef de la plus grande d?mocratie ne fut tant photographi? - avec sa femme! D'o? ce regret de Richard Nixon apr?s sa courte d?faite: ?J'aurais d? acheter tout le stock Kodak avant la campagne.?
L etat de conservation de cette epreuve est tres bonne.

Biographie extraite du site consacre au photographe:
Jacques Lowe is an internationally renowned photographer and photo journalist who is best known for his portraiture of the leading personalities of our time, nationally and internationally, in politics, business, and the entertainment world.
In 1951, Mr. Lowe was a prize winner in LIFE magazine's contest for young photographers, after which Roy Stryker, the grand old man of photography, gave him an eight week assignment in Europe.

Starting in 1953 as a contributor to JUBILEE magazine he won numerous awards for his photo journalistic work among gypsies and other minorities.
He went on to contribute to such magazines as TIME, LIFE, LOOK, The Saturday Evening Post, Ladie's Home Journal, Paris Match, Epoca, Stern, and many others, and he was a staff photographer at Collier's Magazine at the time that journal folded.
In 1956, through his work, he befriended Robert F. Kennedy who had been appointed majority counsel to the McClellan Committee. In 1958 Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, who admired his work, asked him to photograph his "other son, Jack."

That assignment led to his becoming the Official Campaign Photographer of John F. Kennedy's quest for the presidency and, when elected, the personal photographer of President Kennedy. Although offered the White House Photographer's job Lowe declined, but the president asked him to "stick around and record my administration. Don't worry, I'll make it worth your while."
His work for the campaign, the Kennedy White House, and the Kennedy family has resulted in six books, numerous exhibitions from the USA to Moscow, several prime time television shows, and some 150 major magazine pieces and covers. Reviewers have credited Lowe's "natural, warm, and intimate images of the president and his family and the workings of the presidency with keeping alive the Kennedy flame for generations yet to come."

Following his work at the Kennedy White House Lowe returned to his studio in New York where he renewed his magazine, advertising and corporate photography work. His clients ranged from AT&T to Hertz Cars, from DuPont to United Airlines He won numerous gold and silver art director's awards for his commercial work.
In 1968, following the assassination of his friend Bobby Kennedy, Lowe sold his very successful studio and moved to France. "I couldn't deal with these tragedies anymore," Lowe says "I had to get out." He stayed for eighteen years, during which time he more or less gave up photography.

Returning to New York, Lowe again turned to photography with a passion. His assignments ranged from the New York Times Sunday Magazine to People, InStyle, and George. He extended his work to television, contributing to many documentaries on ABC, NBC, CBS, and many cable programs. He produced a forty minute video for PBS on the Kennedy Years, and is currently working on a major video series about jazz.
As a book packager he has produced a twelve volume series of children's books on art for Hyperion/Disney Looking at Paintings (John Russell in his review in the NY Times called it "an exquisite walk through a small museum"), a children's series on photography for Chronicle books, and a highly acclaimed book of Jazz portraits, Jazz: Photographs of the Masters.
He has published over thirty books, including volumes about London's financial center, "The City," Pope John Paul II's travels to South America, Pilgrimage, Persepolis, the fabled city in Iran and Kentucky a loving view of that state. His book on children What Kids Do... came out in 1998.

Lowe also dedicates his talent and time to a great deal of pro bono work. In 1992 he went to Somalia for CARE, reporting on that country's tragic disintegration, a dangerous assignment. His work there received wide television coverage. He has contributed an exhibit, "A Tribute to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" to the Leukemia Society of America to help raise capital to start the "Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Lymphoma Research Fund."
The exhibit opened at Union Station in Washington, D.C. in September of 1995 and has so far traveled to some twenty?seven cities. The exhibit has raised nearly $3,000,000. The exhibit will be permanently housed at the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, Texas as of President's Day 2000.
Two further Jacqueline Kennedy exhibits are currently travelling throughout the United States. Mr. Lowe has had major exhibits in Paris (Month of Photography, 1990), Moscow (Hall of Journalism, 1991), Lausanne (Mus?e de L'Elys?e 1992), the Museum of Modern Art, NY (American Politicians, 1994, a groupshow), in Lille, France, 1996 and Brussels, Belgium, 1996.
On June 11, 1998 Jacques Lowe mounted a major exhibit, 160 photographs, at UNESCO's Paris headquarters. It was opened by Ambassador Felix Rohatyn, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. This was the first time that an American official set foot on to UNESCO headquarters in seventeen years. The exhibit is slated to travel throughout Europe and the world for the rest of the coming decade and in the year 2000 the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art will mount an exhibit of Mr. Lowe's Jazz Photography.
In September of 1997, Mr. Lowe mounted his first gallery exhibit in New York at the LEICA Gallery, NY (all other exhibits had been mounted in public places). The exhibit was repeated at the Govinda Gallery in Washington, DC, the Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, the Gallery for Fine Photography in New Orleans, and the Fotofusion Gallery in Del Ray, Florida, all in 1998. In 1999, he mounted a Jazz exhibit at the Westwood Gallery in Soho, New York. Further gallery exhibits are planned for the year 2000.
Lowe's work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Elys?e Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, the European Center of Photography in Paris, the Kennedy Library Museum in Boston, the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, Texas, as well as in hundreds of private and institutional collections.
