Jackie and John F. Kennedy in 1959

Love the contrasing colors and the look in her eyes.

Brilliant.

In the late 1950's and early 1960's Mark Shaw worked extensively as the "unofficial" family photographer to Jackie and John F. Kennedy. The results of these stunning shoots graced the covers of innumerable magazines and were the subject of two lauded books. Captured here by Shaw in in 1959 is a portrait of Jackie and JFK taken in Hyannis Port. These images were created for a photo essay for LIFE magazine and led to Mark's close relationship with both JFK and Jackie.
