With unprecedented access, Lowe’s photographs of Kennedy cover crucial and unguarded moments from his election campaign and presidency, of life inside the Oval Office and with his family. These historic documents are all the more remarkable for their survival. Lowe’s archive was destroyed when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. These images were salvaged from a bank of contact sheets discovered elsewhere and expertly restored.

“This image of British big wave surfer Andrew Cotton by Octavio Passos came into our inbox while I was on shift and instantly caught my eye.
I am not a lover of the sea and this image terrified me and rightly so as it turns out this image was taken moments before this big wave came crushing down on him. This image suddenly became a news story as the surfer broke his back in the wipeout. Good news is he is recovering in hospital and reportedly said “he was desperate to get back to surfing” – John Keeble | London Picture Desk | #EditorsChoice

A Scottish red deer stag grazes in Glen Etive following the end of the rutting season in Scotland. The rutting season sees the large dominant red deer stags compete against each other for mating rights and can be heard roaring and bellowing in an attempt to attract the hinds. The rut draws to a close in early November when the stags spend the winter feeding to regain strength for the following season. | November 6, 2017 | 📷: @mitchelljeff #GettyImagesNews

People walk amongst rubble from destroyed buildings in an outer neighborhood of the Old City in West Mosul, Iraq. Five months after Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city was liberated from ISIL in a nine-month long battle, residents have returned to the destroyed city to rebuild their lives. After more than two years of ISIL occupation, savage fighting, airstrikes and as ISIL fighters retreated they intentionally destroyed remaining key infrastructure such as bridges, government buildings, water and sewage facilities and neighborhoods laced with booby traps and homemade bombs leaving the city in ruins. Despite the damage residents have hastily returned and managed to setup temporary shops, homes and services to help bring the city back to life. In West Mosul, home to the Old City, more than 32,000 homes were destroyed and a recent report from the U.N. estimates repairing Mosul's basic infrastructure will cost more than $1 billion and take years to complete.| November 6, 2017 | @cmcgrath_photo #GettyImagesNews
