Kennedy in Berlin: Photographs by Ulrich Mack


Kennedy in Berlin: Photographs by Ulrich Mack Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andldquo;Ich bin ein Berliner.andrdquo; With these words, John F. Kennedy made history. Addressing a crowd of several hundred thousand in West Berlin, two years after the erection of the Berlin Wall, the young and charismatic president conveyed solidarity and support for West Germany on behalf of the United States, marking the height of good relations between the two countries and a decisive moment in Cold War history as well.

The local media were poised to record this momentous event. Among the photographers and reporters covering the Kennedy visit was twenty-eight-year-old Ulrich Mack, whose never-before-published photographs feature the president in a variety of settings: a triumphal ticker-tape procession down the main street of West Berlin with West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Willy Brandt, mayor of Berlin; a visit to the notorious Checkpoint Charlie where Kennedy stands atop the observation deck; a crowd of cheering West Berliners encircling the president following his impassioned speech. Mackandrsquo;s photographs are technically superb but, more important, they are guided by an instinctive feel for capturing great momentsandmdash;including those on the sidelines that, in their candor, often surpass the staged appearances. For the modern-day viewer, many of the photos are also remarkable for having been taken at very close range.

Published on the fiftieth anniversary of this historic occasion, Kennedy in Berlin reproduces more than one hundred of Mackandrsquo;s photos taken throughout the state visit in June 1963andmdash;selected by the photographer himself and editor Hans-Michael Koetzle, offering a look at this important event.
