In 1967, Richard Avedon shot four portraits of the Beatles, using solarized colors and distorted exposure to echo the band’s psychedelic ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ album covers. Each portrait was overlaid with fluorescent pigments and symbolic attributes of each band member: Ringo’s peace dove, George’s henna, Paul’s flower power, and John’s eyeglasses. Shortly after, these posters were created and released for fans in the US, UK, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Richard Avedon (American, 1923-2004) helped define American style and beauty through his prolific career as a fashion and portrait photographer. As the artistic director for Harper’s Bazaar, and frequent contributor to Vogue, Look, and Life magazines, Avedon introduced highly sensual black and white images to the visual vernacular of fashion culture. He became renowned for his iconic portraits of major 20th-century figures, chronicling an era of artists, writers, and musicians in extreme detail.
