Behind Beatlemania Privileged access to the Fab Four In early 1964, photographer Harry Benson got a call from the photo editor of London's Daily Express who asked him to cover The Beatles' trip to Paris. It was the beginning of a career-defining relationship with the band which would both make Benson's name and produce some of the most intimate photographs ever taken of The Beatles. In Paris, Benson captured the now famed photograph of the Fab Four having a pillow fight at the George V Hotel, an image Benson himself has called the best shot of his career. Later that same year, he documented the group's debut US tour, including their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, their surprising encounter with Cassius Clay, and the hysteria of New York Beatlemania. Benson also covered George Harrison's honeymoon in Barbados. This book collects the best of Benson's luminous black and white Beatles portfolio, alongside quotes and newspaper clippings from the period, and Benson's own introduction, adding personal testimony to these era-defining images.Text in English, French and German.
