About the image
Golden Dreams is a photographic journey accompanying The Beatles during the filming of A Hard Day's Night in Liverpool, 1964. The limited edition book presents Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler's unpublished pictures of The Beatles, the Liverpool music scene's early-60s explosion, and the phenomenon of the Merseybeat.
Astrid Kirchherr: "These photos were taken in the spring of 1964. It's a time that will always belong to The Beatles. No other journalists were allowed next to them at that time. They were so busy that Brian Epstein had ruled that they should not be bothered by the press. So Max and I were very lucky: they were good to Max and they treated me as they always had, like an old friend."
