Robert F. Kennedy Photo Collection
"Bobby and Freckles"
Fort Stevens State Park, Oregon CoastMay 24, 1968
Historic Robert F. Kennedy documentary photo of Bobby walking with his pet dog Freckles along the Oregon Coast shoreline is offered as a museum grade art print. I used an advanced motorized Nikon F with an 85mm Nikkor lens, a personal favorite for pictorial or photojournalism photography. The moderate telephoto perspective lends a most natural pictorial perspective perfect for the brilliant overcast light. Kodak Ektachrome film was used for this eloquent study.
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.
