In this vintage documentary arts portrait, I captured Bobby Kennedy prior to the 1968 Presidential Campaign. Kennedy visited Portland, Oregon and spoke at the Labor Temple in the Fall of 1966. At the time, Robert helped Congresswoman Edith Green in her successful bid for re-election as U.S. House Representative. The Senator is shown in an engaging portrait of optimism characteristic of his positive vision for progressive change.


Robert was a living embodiment of his slain brother. He represents the resurrection of the promise that he and his brother embodied while in the White House. That restoration, after Dallas, took many forms: Civil Rights at home, Human Rights abroad and the end of Apartheid for all people. His message and charisma and his policies were understood as ending all of the cruel and artificial divisions allowing him to bring a process of healing between people.

The print offers considerable graphic depth augmented by cool and warm gray quadtones in the best tradition of black and white fine art printing. The B&W negative from which this print is made is in pristine condition with little if any deterioration. Makes a strong impression with excellent scale at this larger size. Suitable for immediate safe viewing (the print is clear sleeved on foam core board) and ready for framing.
