A bestselling author goes behind the lens of a legendary photographer to capture a magical time

A consummate photojournalist, Stanley Tretick was sent by United Press International to follow the Kennedy campaign of 1960. The photographer soon befriended the candidate and took many of JFK's best pictures during this time. When Kennedy took office, Tretick was given extensive access to the White House, and the picture magazine Look hired him to cover the president and his family. Tretick is best known today for the photographs he took of President Kennedy relaxing with his children. His photographs helped define the American family of the early sixties and lent Kennedy an endearing credibility that greatly contributed to his popularity.

Accompanied by an insightful, heartwarming essay from Kitty Kelley—Tretick's close friend—about the relationship between the photographer and JFK, Capturing Camelot includes some of the most memorable images of America's Camelot and brings to life the uniquely hopeful historical era from which it emerged.

Kitty Kelley does a extraordinary job of drawing you in with her exquisite storytelling. You are taken back in time where you imagine what life was like for John F. Kennedy and his family. The photojournalist, Stanley Tretick (who was Kitty Kelley's best friend), took beautiful photographs of the Kennedy's. He was an incredibly talented photographer. He captured amazing moments with photos as Kitty Kelley does with words. I would define "Capturing Camelot" as a tribute of sorts. A tribute of her best friend Stanley Tretick and of our 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. "Capturing Camelot" is a "keepsake" of never-before-seen photos and a poignant story. I highly recommend this book.
