Time magazine has a group of newly discovered photos from the late Jacques Lowe who was in JFK’s inner circle–he’s the same one who took the iconic photo of LBJ taking the oath of office after the assassination.

At his death, Lowe had plans for a complete Kennedy record. But five months after he died, all his Kennedy negatives stored in a vault at 5 World Trade Center were baked to dust by the fires of 9/11. Friends, former colleagues, his children and publishers saw the possibility of a new book in the surviving prints and contact sheets that had remained in his loft.

Finally, here is a list of photographers from somewhere on the web:
Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, John Coplans, Martin Parr, William Wegman, Robert Mapplethorpe, David Hockney, Moholy-Nagy, Andy Warhol, Rodchenko, Richard Prince, Nan Goldin, Alfred Stieglitz, El Lissitzky, Edgar Degas, Sophie Calle, Robert Irwin, Gordon Matta-Clark, Edward Steichen, Charles Sheeler, John Heartfield, Sylvia Plachy, Muybridge, Paul Strand, Henri_Cartier-Bresson, Andy Goldsworthy, Sally Mann, Sherrie Levine, Christopher Williams, Andres Serrano, Leni Riefenstahl
