JFK & LEWIS HINES PHOTO EXHIBIT AT THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY

(Thank you to member Joanne for the suggestion)

We will tour the two photo exhibits focusing on Lewis Hines and JFK. The Lewis Hines exhibit documents immigrant arrivals to Ellis Island while the JFK exhibit focuses on the bystander's view of the presidents' assassination and following.  (Updated note: The 22nd is the 50th anniversary of his death)

A great to spend a Saturday...

12pm - 1pm: view the exhibits
1pm: optional group lunch following (details TBD)

For anyone new to the museum, it is a charming, small footprint that houses high quality exhibitions centered on photography.

Please note: the only cost will be admission to the museum ($15)

    Although the JFK exhibit was small, it was very interesting to see on- the-spot photos and films from bystanders, especially since this was long before the days when one took photos with one's camera.

    The Hines exhibit is much larger and is well worth seeing; those interested in what immigrant home life and work life was like in the early 20th century would probably really enjoy this.

    A nice outing....good to see long standing members of the group and to welcome new ones.

    A great exhibit! Hines' photos provide an excellent depiction of the life of the immigrant in particular at the time of the early 20th century.

    Do you know if they are going to reveal any of the Assination Report information that was sealed, for 50 years, at the time of JFK's loss?

      Walter, my understanding is that this is an exhibit of photos taken by bystanders/witnesses at the scene of the assassination, Parkland Hospital, etc. The other exhibit on view is Lewis Hines' photos of immigrants, the lower East Side, etc. FYI, REELZ TV has been running a very interesting 2 hour documentary this month called JFK: The Smoking Gun, which puts forth a very plausible theory about the 3rd bullet and subsequent cover up.

      Hi Walter, I did inquire and the museum response was: "none in the exhibition that I am aware of. The exhibition is comprised of images, video stills and other artifacts recorded by eye-witnesses, or “citizen-journalists,” rather than by professional photojournalists. One of them is the famous Polaroid shot by Mary Moorman at the moment of the assassination, another is a fascinating journal archiving all of Lee Harvey Oswald’s possessions"

      Funny thing is I saw the date on the exhibit title but didn't register. Blame it on post event foggy brain!
