Overview


Up until his death in 2004, Bob Davidoff had been the photographer in residence at the Kennedy’s “Winter White House”—better known as their Palm Beach home. For almost fifty years, Davidoff chronicled the extended Kennedy clan on holiday, capturing the youthful JFK and his beautiful family during their moments of fun and relaxation. The legendary Davidoff was a fixture in the Kennedy Florida household, and many of his photos are part of the family’s personal collections.

Now, for the first time in book form, Bob Davidoff’s Kennedy photos of their days in the sun—in Palm Beach as well as in Hyannis Port, Sun Valley, and other favorite getaway spots—have been collected in The Kennedy Family Album. Linda Corley, an Emmy Award-winning writer, provides the anecdotes behind the pictures and captures many of their unscripted moments, from Jackie surprising her husband on the tarmac of the Palm Beach airport to Rose leading a family sing-along. Most of these photos have never been seen by the general public, making The Kennedy Family Album a truly unique and unstaged portrait of “America’s royal family.”

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For almost 50 years, until his death in 2004, Bob Davidoff served as the trusted photographer-in-residence at the Kennedy Palm Beach estate, best known to history as JFK's "Winter White House." This large-format pictorial displays informal family pictures that he snapped during that long tenure. For those of us who still recall the golden days of Camelot, these photos will have a special poignancy; but even for those who don't, The Kennedy Family Album will evoke a mystique that seems certain to survive for at least another generation. Senator Edward Kennedy contributed a touching foreword to the book.

    What a gorgeous book with wonderful photos

    I really enjoyed seeing these photos and reading the stories and anecdotes that describe them. I've never seen a lot of these photos and some are very poignant shots, like the last photo taken of JFK before he left Palm Beach to head off to Dallas. It really gives a new perspective on the Kennedy Family, during the Camelot years, while they spent time in Palm Beach. I definitely recommend this book for your personal library and also it will be a wonderful gift book.
