Mark Shaw

Mark Shaw is best known for his photographs of Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy, which he shot originally for LIFE magazine and later as the Kennedy's "unofficial" family photographer. He was first recognized as a Fashion and Advertising photographer which led him to photograph some of the most notable celebrities of the 1950's. After Shaw's death, most of his work was put into storage. Majority of his photos remained unseen for over 40 years, leading to the Mark Shaw Photographic Archive.
