"Benson’s first solo exhibition in Scotland, which will be displayed at the National Portrait Gallery before transferring to the Smithsonian Institute in the United States later this year, includes images of [Robert] Kennedy as he slumped to the ground, the senator’s wife Ethel screaming and the shocked crowd watching the assassination unfold."

A photo of RFK "as he slumped"?? That's news to me.

I was also intrigued by this when I read it. This might warrant a day trip to Scotland to see what all the fuss is about, I might try to get a copy or a print of the photo. I'm sure some of the UK based members would be interested in seeing it.

If you make it there, I would be most interested in a description of the RFK "slumping" photo.

But 6 pounds sounds like it might be somewhat steep

Indeed it does, if I had a trust fund I would be dipping into it.

I will attempt to contact the photographer and make an attempt to get an early release of the photo, extremely unlikely but worth a go.

Mr.Benson appears to be quite interested in the Kennedys, having snaped them on several occasions.
