A Time it Was: Bobby Kennedy in the Sixties
Title | A Time it Was: Bobby Kennedy in the Sixties
Author | Bill Eppridge
Type | Book
Rating | 10
Notes | On June 6, 1968, at the age of 42 and at the height of his popularity, Robert F. Kennedy was tragically assassinated. Presidential candidate, U.S. Senator, civil rights activist, father—Kennedy was all of these things—and, to many Americans, he embodied the power of possibility and positive change during a period of social unrest,racial inequality, and war.

Renowned Life photographer Bill Eppridge followed and photographed Kennedy during his early campaign days up to his untimely death. A Time It Was features dynamic images of the public Kennedy, as well as rare, intimate ones, many of which have never before been published. It includes an essay by Pete Hamill, renowned author and friend of Robert F. Kennedy, who writes about who Kennedy was and gives a moving firsthand account of the night Kennedy was assassinated. Released to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of Kennedy’s death, A Time It Was reveals why the memory and legacy of Kennedy and his dreams continue to be relevant today.

About the Author:
Bill Eppridge is one of the most accomplished photojournalists of the twentieth century and has captured some of the most significant moments in American history. Over the last 35 years, his work has appeared in numerous publications, including National Geographic, Life, and Sports Illustrated.

Comments | [05/31/08] What a wonderful tribute to the talents of one of the greatest American photojournalists of our time- Bill Eppridge. This book not only showcases the amazing historical photographs Eppridge shot of the Robert F. Kennedy presidential campaign for LIFE magazine- but it also highlights his fantastic ability to tell a story with the written word. Bill's words are a perfect compliment to his pictures to give us a rare and unique window into one of the most historical times in US history. This is a must have for the library of any photojournalist.
