Jackie Kennedy was first photographed by Mark Shaw for a cover story in ‘LIFE’ published August 24th, 1959. Titled “Jackie Kennedy – a Front Runner’s Appealing Wife”, this photo essay started the re- lationship with Mark Shaw that resulted in some of the most famous and enduring photos of the Kennedy family during JFK’s presidency. This shot of Jackie posed behind JFK is featured in the article and is partly a caricature of the motto “Behind every Great Man is a Great Woman.” Mark Shaw shot this series of images in the yellow sun- room in two permutations; a set with JFK in the foreground and a set with Jackie in the foreground.

Mark Shaw’s vintage silver gelatin prints were all produced under his supervision. There are a limited number of these prints available for sale and are mainly one off prints. Most works depict the Kennedy family. There are a few vintage prints available of Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel and other celebrities. They were produced during the 1950s and early 1960s.
