Description

In addition to working within the world of fashion, Richard Avedon lent his photographic talents to civil rights and rock posters. In 1967, Avedon shot four psychedelic portraits of the Beatles. The solarized colors and distorted exposure echoed the band’s recent hallucinogenic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Magical Mystery Tour” albums. Each print is copyright stamped with "Limited First Printing."
