Elliott Erwitt (*1928)
Jacqueline and Robert Kennedy at the funeral of JFK, Arlington, Virginia, USA, 1963
Many harrowing photographs were taken that day – but the most powerful is by Erwitt.
It portrays Jackie Kennedy with a soldier just next to her, his glittering insignia contrasting with the deep black hat and veil she wears. Erwitt aptures the expression on Jackie Kennedy’s face with harrowing precision through the veil. An iconic Elliott Erwitt photograph.
