YESTERDAY: The Beatles Once Upon a Time - Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler

The Beatles Once Upon a Time

By Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler

Photographer Astrid Kirchherr met The Beatles in Hamburg in 1960 when they were a struggling band, playing seedy clubs on the Reeperbahn. Four years later, the band was at the centre of the worldwide phenomenon of Beatlemania when Astrid, accompanied by photojournalist Max Scheler, travelled to London and Liverpool to meet them and took the photographs that appear in this book. Astrid’s friendship with the group allowed for unrivalled access and a collection of intimate photographs, rarely seen until now. They capture The Beatles in private, on set during the filming of A Hard Day’s Night, and in very public moments when they were confronted with their own fame. Yesterday is a stunning collection of images, and a moving testament to the inspirational effect of The Beatles’ success on their hometown, as well as an historic account of the band’s meteoric rise to superstardom.
