Kennedy family on beach, Hyannis Port, 1959

Mark Shaw lived from 1922-1969. As a photographer he is perhaps best known for his images of Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy and their family which he originally photographed on assignment for LIFE magazine, and later as their family photographer.

Also leading fashion photographer, Mark Shaw worked for Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, and a host of other fashion magazines. He started working for LIFE magazine in 1952 and in 16 years shot 27 covers and almost 100 stories. Throughout the 1950's and 1960s' Mark Shaw shot the European fashion collections for LIFE, and was one of the first photographers to shoot fashion on the runways and "backstage" at the couture shows. He covered Audrey Hepburn extensively for LIFE during the making "of Sabrina". His photographs of Audrey Hepburn had been lost after Mark Shaw's death, and were only found in 2005. Featured in the exhibition are photographs from every facet of Mark Shaw's remarkable and distinguished career.
