Cornell Capa by Richard Whelan
Book DescriptionCornell Capa began the 1960 campaign season a stalwart Adlai Stevenson supporter, having closely covered Stevenson's 1952 and 1956 presidential bids for Life magazine. In the course of working on a story for Life on the nature of American politics, Capa first encountered John F. Kennedy during the Wisconsin primary. After Kennedy secured his party's nomination at the Democratic National Convention, Capa covered his campaign for Life. When Kennedy was elected, Capa was inspired to create a book on the first hundred days of the Kennedy presidency. He enlisted nine fellow Magnum photographers in his effort, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, and Burt Glinn. That book, titled Let Us Begin: The First 100 Days of the Kennedy Administration, was published on the 110th day, and is often cited as the first example of "instant history." Drawn from the collection of the International Center of Photography, the photographer's archives, and the Time-Life Picture Collection, JFK for President includes over 100 images, many of which have not been previously published including rarely seen color images.

Author Biography - Richard Whelan
Cornell Capa was born in Budapest in 1918 and has lived in New York since 1937. He was a photographer on the staff of Life magazine from 1946 until May 1954, when his brother, Robert Capa, was killed by a landmine in Indochina. Cornell then joined Magnum Photos, the agency which his brother had co-founded. During his Magnum years, he traveled to the Soviet Union and covered the Israeli Six-Day War, but his most extensive projects focused on politics and poverty in Latin America, on social issues in the United States, and on American presidential politics from Adlai Stevenson to Barry Goldwater. In 1974 he founded the International Center of Photography, in New York, and served as its director for twenty years. Since his retirement, in 1994, he has worked on numerous books and exhibitions, and he remains one of the photographic community's most respected elder statesmen.
