In association with the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, WS Productions is pleased to be organizing an exhibition of iconic photographs to celebrate the 100th birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States. An exhibition of 76 framed photographs was launched at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC on May 3 in anticipation of JFK’s 100 th birthday on May 29. Now, the exhibition is on its way to Hamburg.

The most exhaustively researched group of Kennedy photos ever assembled, the exhibition celebrates the life, political career, and extraordinary vision of one of the country’s most admired and most charismatic presidents.

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times” brings together images culled from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections and the Kennedy family archives that capture the dramatic scope of Kennedy’s life. The exhibition is one of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled. “American Visionary” is based on the book JFK: A Vision for America.

Kennedy’s administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. Documentary photographers such as Ed Clark, Ralph Crane, Philippe Halsman, Jacques Lowe, Steve Schapiro and Sam Vestal captured the optimism and challenges of the early 1960s in some of the finest and most vivid images of the period. Some of the photographs on display are iconic; others have never before been published.

“John F. Kennedy is still seen as a symbol around the world, representing and espousing the best and most universal elements of the American character,” said Stephen Kennedy Smith, Kennedy’s nephew and co-editor of JFK: A Vision for America. “It is our hope that the compelling images of President Kennedy’s life and work on view in this exhibition will remind visitors not only of the values that defined his presidency, but also will introduce him to new audiences and future leaders.”

As part of the “JFK 100 Centennial Celebration,” the Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is spearheading a series of events and initiatives across the nation aimed at inspiring new generations to find meaning in the enduring values that formed the heart of the Kennedy presidency— courage, freedom, justice, service and vision. In Washington, the exhibition is part of a citywide celebration with other cultural organizations including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the White House Historical Association and the Newseum.

Visitors can join the conversation about the centennial celebrations at #JFK100.

The companion book on JFK – A Vision for America, edited by Stephen Kennedy Smith and Douglas Brinkley will be released at the time of the opening of the exhibition. The exhibition and the book provide an ideal platform for events, public discussion, and educational programming.
