It’s intriguing how many “new” and “rare” photographs of the British rock icon The Beatles are now surfacing, don’t you think? Among the freshest ones are the never before seen photos of the Fab Four shot by Henry Grossman during the mid-1960’s. Take a look at some of these newly published photos after the jump!
Just a week ago, fans of The Beatles were delighted with the news of an interesting rare slide collection of the Fab Four that will be put on a special auction a couple of months from now. Now, Beatles fans and photography enthusiasts are in for another treat, as yet another collection of never before seen photos of the Fab Four can now be purchased as prints.
Flavorwire has reported that the snaps are part of an enormous 6,000-photo archive by New York City-based photographer Henry Grossman, who extensively photographed the group between 1963 and 1967. These photo occasions include their initial appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, on the set of Help! in the Bahamas and Austria, and even in the privacy of their homes during rare moments of downtime.
It’s not surprising, therefore, for Grossman to share that the iconic musicians became accustomed to seeing him with a camera in hand, ready to document everything that happened around him. Aren’t we glad he was ever ready with his shooter, as he managed to take these beautiful photos, some some rather candid and rather laid-back, like the ones below:
