We’re kicking off a new project!
It’s the 40th anniversary of the grassroots presidential campaign that began in the south. It was a hot summer, much like this one and the national press corps had descended on tiny Plains, Georgia. A little-known southern governor had broken through the field of Democratic contenders and had won his party’s nomination for president. The governor was Jimmy Carter and photojournalist Ken Hawkins was there capturing his ascent to the presidency. Many of the moments captured – both public and private – have never been published – until now.
Hawkins’ new book Jimmy Carter – Photographs 1970 – 2010 opens with a foreword by Carter White House Deputy Press Secretary Rex Granum that precedes over one hundred tritone photographs and an afterword by the photographer.
This first printing of 2000 copies will be signed and editioned and will sell for $21.95 plus s&h.
Jimmy Carter – Photographs 1970 – 2010 is now available for U.S. preorder at
http://www.CarterBook.com , with international preorder beginning on August 10, 2016.
The most important part of this project is that all profits will be donated to the global humanitarian efforts of the Carter Center.
