From the publisher: This highly illustrated volume, including many photographs never before published, looks at the rich but understudied photographic history of the President John F. Kennedy assassination. During a political trip to Texas in November 1963, the President was cut down by assassin bullets while riding in a noontime motorcade through downtown Dallas. At the killing scene in Dealey Plaza many people carried cameras and recorded, in various photographic formats and with different equipment and skills, the last moments in the life of a United States Chief Executive. The photographers included professional photojournalists and rank amateurs, who captured on film in a form truer than any person's memory, relevant and dramatic slices of the reality of the scene. This book examines the history of those films and photographs, including the famous Abraham Zapruder movie clip and dozens of other lesser known pictures. Revealed is the story of how these images were used, and sometimes abused, by the news media and governmental investigations as well as assassination critics who distrusted the government's conclusions in the case. The beliefs of a number of researchers who have discovered assassins within some of these photo images is critically examined. The stories of several photographers who in more recent years claimed to be at the assassination scene and saw important proofs of conspiracy are also carefully studied. A major contribution to the historical record is the author's painstaking pursuit of photographer-witnesses who had not previously been questioned about their presence at the assassination.; 638 pages.
