First Family Photo Album

Jackie Kennedy.

By Irish America Staff
October / November 2001

For those thirsty for more on the interior lives of America’s royal family, rarely or never seen photographs of the Kennedys are available for downloading or purchase on the web. MPTV has acquired the private collection of late photographer Mark Shaw. Shaw was assigned to do a layout on Jackie for a Life article in 1959 and struck up a friendship with the captivating First Lady. From then on he was the Kennedy’s unofficial photographer. Shaw photographed others as well: Audrey Hepburn, Pablo Picasso and Pope Paul VI, are among the many famous to have stood in front of his lens. You can visit Shaw’s archives, for the most part not viewed since his death in 1969, at www.MPTV.net. ♦
