The Photograph Portfolio

Ringo Starr

The Photograph Portfolio showcases Ringo Starr's camera work in a series of museum-quality prints. Created in small artist editions of only 25 numbered copies, each proof is checked and each print is signed by Ringo Starr as a mark of authenticity.

Taking you on a journey from his first car in Liverpool, to stunning landscape compositions shot as Ringo toured the world with the biggest band in history. In these photos, Ringo shares his own unique viewpoint. His artistic flair allows him to create intimate portraits of The Beatles, capturing sides of John, George and Paul that only a bandmate would see.

'These are shots that no one else could have. I just had the camera with me a lot of the time.' Ringo Starr

1. Liverpool

The Photograph Portfolio

c.1960

'As a drummer, not having a car was pretty difficult. When I had to come on the bus, I had to beg drummers in the other bands, "Let me play your drums." Sometimes they'd let me and sometimes they wouldn't. Later on, when I got my car, other drummers would beg me, "Let me use your kit, man!" and I'd say, "Sure," because I knew what begging for a kit was all about.' Ringo Starr

The Photograph Portfolio

1964

'They're looking at us, and I'm photographing them. The first couple of years, we saw a lot of places from the car because we couldn't go out anywhere. We were just too big time. Everybody wanted a piece of us, so getting out was a big day.' Ringo Starr

3. John and Paul

The Photograph Portfolio

1964

'John and Paul would write the songs at the beginning, then George started, and then I joined in. I remember ending up in the studio for hours and hours in the end. It was good, but I was the first person ever to put a back on a drum stool, so that I could just lean back a little. There was a lot of hanging-out time and I always wanted to be by the kit, ready if anyone got inspired.' Ringo Starr

4. George

The Photograph Portfolio

1964

'There's George, wearing one of Murray the K's T-shirts. Murray the K broke The Beatles in America by playing our record on his Submarine Race Watchers show. He talked in a very weird language, which we couldn't understand, but it seemed like everyone in New York did.' Ringo Starr

Florida, 1964

'We were on a boat in Florida. Somebody lent us their motor launch and we went out. They let me drive and I came in to port straight on! I didn't swing it sideways, and I broke the rail. But, if you were a Beatle, you could break the rails on anybody's boat in those days.' Ringo Starr

7. Old Hickory

The Photograph Portfolio

USA, 1964

'When we were on the train from New York to Washington, the Press told us why we got such a great reception in America. They said, "Ah, we came to kill you, but you gave as good as you got and we love that." I walked to the back of the train and shot out of the back window. I like shots like this. It's very architectural.' Ringo Starr

8. Ringo and Paul

The Photograph Portfolio

1964

'Paul and me. Timer shots are always weird because you don't know when it's going to go. When you're in hotels, you just look for things to do and have a bit of fun. The Beatles only ever had two rooms in a hotel; we'd always share. That's when you really get to know each other, when you're hanging out in the same room.' Ringo Starr

'John had this weird way of sitting. The knee could go down to the floor and the leg right up to his shoulder! John and his fabulous loose hips. It's far out, isn't it? I can't do it. All you people reading this out there - can you do it?' Ringo Starr
