The President & Mrs. Reagan: An American Love Story
By Harry Benson, photographer
As the Reagans' favorite photographer, Harry Benson has long enjoyed a special relationship with the former first family, photographing them numerous times for Life and Vanity Fair magazines. His photographs of the couple, taken at the White House and at the Reagans' homes and ranches, are intimate and appealing records of a happy and fulfilling marriage. Recently, Nancy Reagan invited Benson to photograph the couple together one last time, a bittersweet occasion given the former president's Alzheimer's Disease. That portrait and others spanning nearly 40 years are gathered together in this book.
