Hello, Goodbye - Fine Art Prints

The Beatles in Tokyo 1966

Shimpei Asai

Exclusively for Genesis collectors, six of Shimpei Asai's photographs are now presented as large format, framed art prints. Created in small artist editions, each proof is checked and each museum quality print is signed by Shimpei Asai. A certificate of authenticity accompanies the final framed artwork.

Printed in lightfast Giclée inks onto archival cotton rag paper, the Hello Goodbye - Fine Art Prints make Asai's photography available for the first time outside of Japan, and celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Beatles visit to Tokyo during their final tour of 1966.

The Photographer

Hello, Goodbye - Fine Art Prints

'A young photographer whose eye and lens caught both the public grandeur and intimate minutia of The Beatles Japanese visit.' Allan Kozinn music critic and author

Asai has won awards from the Tokyo Art Directors Club and the Tokyo Copywriter's Club. His work is regularly featured by Canon, and he has created award-winning movie posters, for films such as Parco.

In 1991, Asai opened a gallery for his work, the Seaside Museum in Chiba, and continues to work on various artistic projects, most recently combining his photos with Haiku poetry. As well as photography, Asai has also branched out into filmmaking, (writing, directing and filming Kidnapping Blues in 1982) and has made numerous Japanese TV appearances.
