Why is the world’s oldest photo still standing?
On a summer day in the 1960s, a group of photographers and technicians gathered in the sunroom of the Hilton Head Hotel in Chicago to shoot an image of President John F. Kennedy.
It was one of many such photos that accompanied the publication of a book called Kennedy: His Life and Times.
The book, co-written by photographer Tom Golan and former Washington Post photographer James B. Lee, was published in March 1961.
It documented the life and times of the late President, who was killed by a bomb in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Kennedy had been the most powerful man in the world.
His family had become wealthy, his public image was widely admired and he was admired for his leadership.
His son, President John, was to be the first U.S. president in more than 70 years to not be inaugurated.
But it wasn’t just Kennedy who was loved by Americans.
His reputation was tarnished when the Soviets annexed Crimea in the spring of 2014, and Russia retaliated with a massive military offensive in Ukraine that lasted until April 2018.
Since then, the country has been embroiled in an unprecedented civil war between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian government forces backed by the U.K. and France.
As the conflict continues, the photos from Kennedy’s final days are being rediscovered and studied.
For example, the photograph above was taken in September 1967 when Kennedy was visiting a memorial to victims of the Vietnam War at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. As many as 2,400 Americans were killed during the war.
The photograph was taken by Golan, who is considered one of the great photographers of the 20th century.
Golan, a graduate of Yale University, was a photographer for the Associated Press, Newsweek, Life, Life Magazine, and The Associated Press and he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1967.
He died in 2014 at age 86.
Lee, who worked for the Washington Post from 1961 to 1968, said that he is proud to have worked with the photographers who captured Kennedy’s last days.
“They were extraordinary, and I am especially proud of the way that the photographs were shot.
They were really candid, candid pictures.
It really was a portrait of a man that was living life.
It is a portrait that should never have been taken,” Lee said in an interview.
The photographers were not paid for their work.
The Kennedy family donated the photographs to the Smithsonian in 1973, according to the Kennedy Library and Museum.
The photographs were digitized by the Library of Congress in 2017 and are now on display at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The Washington Post has also been keeping the Kennedy family’s archive of photographs in its archives.
Lee said that the organization is working to digitize the images, which are currently available to researchers.
“We have a lot of work to do, and there is always a new project that comes along that has to be digitized,” Lee told CBC News.
“I think there is so much more that can be learned from this.
I think the people that are studying this will learn something about this, and hopefully they will use it to inform their own research as well.”
