The Taj Mahal and George Harrison – two legendary figures in one photo, why not!
This snapshot was just one of a handful of self-portraits taken by The Beatles’ lead guitarist using a camera equipped with fisheye lens during a pilgrimage to Bombay with his first wife, Pattie Boyd-Harrison, in September 1966. By that time, George was said to have already taken a keen interest on Indian culture and mysticism. It isn’t any wonder, then, that he went there himself to visit holy places, as well as study sitar and yoga with different gurus!
In addition to these pictures, George was said to have also taken videos in 8 mm format. Unfortunately, we can’t find any of these footage as of the moment. However, we’ll leave you with some more of these quirky selfies by the man himself!
