Kennedys election as president of the United States, this book is a revealing and intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official White House photographer.

Drawing on Stoughtons unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or never before reproduced, and supported by a deeply thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves,Portrait of Camelotis an unprecedented portrayal of the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of Camelots 1,065 days.
