In 1960, a Hamburg art student with a flair for fashion and a passion for photography grabbed her camera and began to record intimate moments with a new group of friends, musicians from the north of England. The Beatles were under contract to play seven hours a day at the KaiserKeller Club when Astrid Kirchherr was introduced to them. She immediately saw something special in this young group and began to photograph them in her home and various settings around her city.
Rock Paper Photo is excited to introduce The Astrid Kirchherr Early Beatles Collection, considered one of the most important photographic records of 20th century pop culture. Our first release features 12 beautiful images, each available as hand-signed Silver Gelatin prints in editions ranging from 25 to 145.
