The Beatles Story is excited to introduce a new photographic exhibition, featuring never-before-seen images of the Beatles as seen exclusively through the eyes and camera lens of the fans who were there.
Entitled ‘The People’s Beatles’, the new display forms part of a larger project created by Photobox, a gifting and photo personalisation company, aimed to crowdsource, edit and publish a unique photographic biography and picture archive of The Beatles.
The project was launched with the help of Paul McCartney’s official biographer, Barry Miles, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ last ever live performance, which took place on the Apple rooftop, Savile Row in London on 30th January 1969.
‘The People’s Beatles’ is a visual representation of the Fab Four’s astonishing journey from unknown Liverpudlians to the most popular band in the history of music, as it was seen through the eyes of their adoring fans.
Over 500 of the best photographs from the project and their accompanying anecdotes have now been turned into a must-have coffee table book. The accompanying exhibition now open at the award-winning ‘The Beatles Story’ on the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool, highlights 29 of the best images from the book and the fascinating stories behind them.
All profits from the sale of the book, which is available to purchase from the Fab4 Store, will be donated to Nordoff Robbins, the UK’s leading independent music therapy charity. The exhibit also features an area dedicated to the charity, highlighting some of the work they do and offers visitors the chance to donate and support.
