Astrid Kirchherr Turns 80

21 May 2018

Our warmest wishes to artist and photographer Astrid Kirchherr from all at Genesis on her birthday.

Astrid, who turned 80 on Sunday 20th May, is perhaps best known for her remarkable photography of The Beatles, some of the first from their early days in Liverpool and Hamburg, and for fashioning their now iconic 'mop tops'.

'I know for sure that if I hadn't have met The Beatles in 1960, my life would have been completely different.' - Astrid Kirchherr

Astrid Kirchherr has been a close friend of Genesis Publications for many years and has contributed to four outstanding Beatles titles, including When We Was Fab, Liverpool Days, Golden Dreams and Hamburg Days.

Hamburg Days presents Kirchherr's complete collection of over 250 photographs.
