RFK quoting Franklin Roosevelt- October 24, 1966, Portland, Oregon
In my new interpretive "posterized" artwork based upon my original 1966 portrait, Robert Kennedy is shown in an off guard moment shortly before he spoke at the Old Labor Temple in Portland, Oregon. This archival giclee print offers an exquisite range of tone perfect for the dark light and brooding emotional tone evocative of Robert's mood. Suitable for immediate safe viewing and ready for framing.

Robert F. Kennedy fought for Civil Rights as Attorney General; his positive vision for the advancement of peace, justice, equality and responsibility is still relevant today. 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. The Senator is shown minutes before he would speak at an election rally on behalf of U.S. Representative Edith Green. This is one of my first portraits of Kennedy taken with a Nikon F film camera, loaded with Kodak Tri-X and equipped with a 105mm Nikkor tele lens.
