The estate of John F Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jaques Lowe has accepted undisclosed damages for the loss of his negatives during the 911 bombings reports Amateur Photographer.

The archive had been stored in a safe deposit box, housed within the vaults of 5 World Trade Center next to the twin towers destroyed in the attacks on New York.

When the photographer’s daughter opened the safe in 2002, she discovered that the uninsured negatives had been reduced to a pile of ash and debris.

After lengthy and protracted legal negotiations Lowe’s estate accepted an undisclosed sum from JP Morgan Chase bank without admission of liability.
