Filmmaker Jonas Mekas spent time with the Kennedys and taught the kids how to use 16mm film cameras. His documentary film will have a screening as well as an exhibit of the photos taken during that time. Let's check some of the images...
To help ease the transition of life without a father, Jackie Kennedy invited filmmaker Jonas Mekas and spent a few summers with the Kennedy, as well as the Radziwill families in Montauk during the 1970s. Jonas introduced the Kennedy children to cinema and taught them how to use 16mm cameras.
The images are currently being exhibited at the Agnès b. Galerie Boutique. These rare photos were taken from Jonas Mekas’ documentary film called This Side of Paradise which he shot during his stay with the Kennedys. It will have a special screening on October 13 at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City so if you’re around the area, be sure to check this out.
Opening next month, the show will include never-before-editioned photographs from the private archives of the acclaimed French New Wave photographer, as well as his lesser known landscape images taken during his travels in Asia.

Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.
