Seite 1 2 3 4
“Benson unveils never–before–seen images of the Fab Four in his landmark book for TASCHEN… nobody had a more privileged glimpse of the Fabs in their first flash of fame.”— Hollywoodreporter.com, Los Angeles, USA
“The past year has been a boon for seeing The Beatles with new eyes—from their tour manager's never-before-published tour photos to Linda McCartney's tender portraits to rediscovered vintage children's books—but count on TASCHEN to up the ante on any cultural trope. The newly released The Beatles: On the Road 1964-1966 is a lavish collection of hundreds of Harry Benson's luminous black-and-white photographs of the Fab Four at close quarters—from ecstatic encounters with fans to quiet moments in the recording studio to playful boyish frolicking.”— theatlantic.com, Washington, USA
“They were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era‚ and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century.”— Social & Personal, Dublin, Irland
“Beatles All Over Your Coffee Table. Beatlemania in France. You really missed out. This British newspaperman didn’t. And now he’s turning the lesser–known‚ more–intimate highlights (read: that hotel pillow fight in Paris) into something compelling for your coffee table. Or extremely heavy for the beach.”— urbandaddy.com, USA
“The (Pillow Fight) photograph – a funny‚ indelible image of the most famous musical performers in history acting like a bunch of giddy kids – is one of hundreds in the hefty‚ staggeringly gorgeous new limited edition of Benson: The Beatles On the Road 1964-1966… The book‚ expertly designed by art director Josh Baker‚ chronicles the whirlwind of life on tour: live appearances‚ rabid crowds climbing on limos‚ the set of A Hard Day’s Night‚ even a few elegant portraits of rare quiet moments amid the hysteria. The price is steep ($ 700)‚ but 200 lavish art editions‚ which came with a silver gelatin print signed by Benson‚ sold out quickly; serious fans of photography could not wait to get their hands on the book… Benson loves the TASCHEN book – ‘I'm in awe of it’‚ he says – but in the end‚ the music is what will always matter most.”— The Miami Herald, Miami, USA
“Beatles fans will be delighted by this massive tome.”— Amateur Photographer, Großbritannien
“Benson’s Beatles are jubilant and unscripted – four lads on the knife–edge of global fame and later being swept up in its vortex. Benson caught candid glimpses of work and play that show an easy rapport between lens–man and band.”— American Photo, New York, USA
“Is crammed with beautiful‚ luminescent pictures of the group in their mid–60s pomp‚ from the lads larking around in the Georges V Hotel in Paris to their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and on to the encounter with Mohammad Ali. Benson really did have access all areas.”— Umbrella Magazine, London, Großbritannien
“If you’re a Beatles fan or know someone who is‚ TASCHEN's new title Harry Benson. The Beatles is the ultimate gift. The book‚ a collector's edition of 1,764 numbered copies, showcases hundreds of iconic Beatles photographs shot by Benson from 1964 to 1966. Benson famously captured the Fab Four having a pillow fight at the George V Hotel‚ their groundbreaking first visit to the United States‚ George's honeymoon in Barbados and much more… in addition to the photographs‚ many previously unseen‚ the book also contains quotes and newspaper clippings from the period.”— thelambist.com, San Francisco, USA
„Der schottische Fotograf Harry Benson begleitete die Beatles in den 60er Jahren. Und war ihnen dabei so nah wie kein anderer. Jetzt hat er einen Beatles-Bildband veröffentlicht, der edler nicht sein könnte.“— Hamburger Morgenpost, Hamburg, Deutschland
