Avedon meets The Beatles

The Beatles are part of our modern pop culture and the quintessential musical/cultural icons of the 60s. Richard Avedon, one of the most famed photographers in history, took these photographs of them, along with a group photo in b/w back in 1967. These 4 photos were released as posters in several magazines back then and became collectible items immediately. In each of them Avedon cleverly reflects the essence of each Beatle....we can see George's Hindu mysticism, John's intellectual and spiritual side, Ringo's calmness and Paul's appreciation for nature and creativity.
