LIFE : Robert Kennedy dying by Bill Eppridge


I got off the stage in the hotel ballroom before Senator Robert Kennedy did. The cameramen would form a wedge in front of a political candidate. The candidate is right behind us while we’re backing through the crowd. It gives him a little bit of room to shake hands, and we can make pictures. We had this wedge formed. The Senator came down, and Bill Barry, his bodyguard, said, “This way, Senator,” and Bobby said, “No, Bill, I'm going this way,” and pointed back to the kitchen. Barry said to him again, “Senator, this way.” Kennedy said, “Bill, I'm going this way,” and he turned and he went, which meant he went on his own. He had no wedge in front of him. He didn't have his protection. He didn't have us in front of him.
