To me the best photos are the candid ones - there is a book i am watching on ebay called the Beatles Unseen, showing spontaneous and revealing images of them. The posed and contrived 'official' photo shoots have their place and are of course excllent quality, but they lack the down to earthness of the bands attitude, especially of the early days.
Any way have a look and enjoy..
|I have always liked this early Hamburg shot, it almost looks Victorian. The passers by are Stu, Paul and George. This is Lennon with his early attitude shown both in his pose and face....|
|Another great docu-social shot of John, maybe in Pauls kitchen?|
|Is that the Gallagher brothers? could be from 1996 instead of 1966...|
|There's a well know story of Ringo taking a suitcase of tinned baked beans to India in 1968 on their mediation sabbatical. He hasn't got a strong stomach apparently...|
|Sometime in 1967, probably around pre-release of Sgt. Pepper, for such an influential look and legacy it was a remarkably short period of time.|
