This photo, claimed to be J.F.K.’s favourite portrait of himself, has been used frequently since JFK’s assassination to symbolise his presidency. It depicts J.F.K. as a reflective, romantic figure and helped to cement the idea of ‘Camelot’ which Jackie so deftly applied to his presidency. It is unclear whether this photo currently hangs in the White House during Donald Trump’s tenure; it has however been on display throughout multiple presidencies since J.F.K was assassinated.

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.
