Harry Benson’s Beatles portfolio includes some of the most intimate photos ever taken of the band.This volume collects the best of his luminous Fab Four shots, from their 1964 Paris tour (pillow fight included) to George’s honeymoon in Barbados. Contextualized by press clippings and a personal essay by Benson, these images are an exclusive look at the public and private face of Beatlemania.
Benson’s luminous black-and-white photographs show at close quarters the Beatles composing, performing, encountering their fans, relaxing, and engaging with each other, while trying to cope with their increasingly isolating fame. In addition to hundreds of photographs, many previously unseen, there is an introductory essay by Benson as well as quotes and newspaper clippings from the period.
