Forty thousand negatives taken by John F. Kennedy’s personal photographer were probably destroyed in the World Trade Center. But 30 prints taken from them are on display at The Sixth Floor Museum.
Jacques Lowe followed JFK from his days as a senator through his brief presidency. His negatives, valued at $2 million, were stored in a heavily damaged vault in New York. Searchers continue to look for them but with little hope.
The 30 photos, part of an exhibit on Jackie Kennedy, are in the breezeway connecting the visitors center to neighboring Dallas County administrative offices. They can be seen without a ticket.
