In a color photograph published in Life magazine a week after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the president and First Lady are shown arriving at Love Field on a resplendent fall morning. Their aura of youth, beauty, and vitality, which seemed to pertain to the nation itself in the early 1960s, would be shattered by the events of the following hour and yet also, paradoxically, intensified. David Lubin, author of Shooting Kennedy: JFK and the Culture of Images and Charlotte C. Weber Professor of Art at Wake Forest University, will examine this and other iconic photos of that weekend to see how the Camelot legend reached its apotheosis.
