Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr unveils eight further signed portraits of his Beatles bandmates in the Photograph Portfolio 2015.

50 years ago, Ringo shot on both black-and-white and vibrant colour films, and experimented with psychedelic fish-eye lens effects. Ringo shows us George in a moment of quiet reflection; John and Paul recording in the studio; Merseybeat meetings; a seventies self-portrait and The Beatles in India.

Reproduced from the negative for the first time as large-format, museum-quality prints, only 25 numbered copies will be created worldwide. Each artwork is signed by Ringo Starr as a mark of authenticity.

The Photograph Portfolio 2015

George V, Paris, January 1964

4. George

The Photograph Portfolio 2015

USA, February 1964

'Pensive George. You should count the number of times we bought that heavy corduroy overcoat. We would always buy things in fours. It was snowing in Washington and it was freezing.

The Photograph Portfolio 2015

Miami, Florida, February 1964

6. India

The Photograph Portfolio 2015

Delhi, July 1966

'These are taken through the fish-eye lens. I like cameras and I like lenses. I think we all bought a Pentax in Japan the first time we went there. If you look closely, John and Paul are both carrying cameras. India was a great place to go to see something you would never see anywhere else.' Ringo Starr

7. John and Paul

The Photograph Portfolio 2015

Recording 'Hey Bulldog', Studio 3, Abbey Road Studios, February 11th 1968

'John and Paul would write the songs at the beginning, then George started, and then I joined in - too late I may add. We would usually play the track as a band, and then we'd overdub the tambourines or whatever instruments we used. We made some incredible music. It worked. And there were many, many magic moments, when it really worked.' Ringo Starr

8. Ringo

Self Portrait,1970s

'I'm still wearing all my rings, and a St Francis necklace that my auntie got me. It was ripped off in New York. The fans didn't really attack us a lot - those kids just got lucky. We would go out quite a bit in those days, but it started getting really crazy later on.' Ringo Starr
