Never before has an assassination been photographed from start to finish:from the happiness in the Ambassador Hotel Ballroom to the hell that awaited R.F.K. in the kitchen. No matter what words are said, photographs don't lie. Harry Benson's photographs convey the horror of the tragedy: the panic in the room, Ethel Kennedy trying to help, the screaming not another Dallas, a young girl placing her "R.F.K. for President" boater on the pool of blood. "As Bobby lay there, a rosary placed in his hand, chaos ensued, and five others were shot around me," said photographer Benson.

Newly released in paperback format, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Senator Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, with excerpts from R.F.K.'s speeches and from photographer Harry Benson's own 1966-68 journals, R.F.K.: A Photographer's Journal is an intimate photographic portrait and a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man, and the legacy he left behind.
