Ringo Starr

Celebrating 60 years of The Beatles in the USA and the 50th anniversary of Genesis Publications, Ringo Starr is unveiling new additions to The PHOTOGRAPH Portfolio. Among other highlights, Ringo shows us John and Paul recording at Abbey Road Studios, George smiling on a yacht in Cannes, and the first-ever photo of Ringo behind the drums at the Cavern Club, Liverpool.

Stunning landscape pictures, taken during Ringo's travels across the world, join these intimate portraits. Ringo shot on classic black-and-white and vibrant colour film and experimented with flash photography and infrared effects, all of which can be seen in this new and updated collection.

The PHOTOGRAPH Portfolio showcases Ringo's camera work in a series of museum-quality prints, reproduced from the negative for the first time. Created in small artist editions of only 25 numbered copies, each print is signed by Ringo Starr. A certificate of authenticity accompanies the final framed artwork.

USA, February 1964

Ringo Starr: '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.'

'We always had a professional photographer to take photos of us, but I just loved taking pictures and I still do.' - Ringo Starr

60 years ago, Ringo shot on black-and-white and vibrant colour films and experimented with flash photography and infrared effects, all of which can be seen in The Photograph Portfolio. Ringo's photographs are now being reproduced from the negative for the first time as large-format, museum-quality prints. Only 25 numbered copies of each image will be created worldwide.
