Paul McCartney & John Lennon at Abbey Road Studios.
The Beatles utilized the studio to full effect by breaking with tradition, changing recording techniques, and forever pushing the boundaries of what was considered popular music. They experimented with flanging, backwards recording, automatic double-tracking, and controlled feedback, among countless other innovations.
Freeman is responsible for five consecutive UK album covers during the peak years of "Beatlemania," from 1963 to 1965. His work was featured on With The Beatles, A Hard Days Night, Beatles For Sale, Help! and Rubber Soul. He also designed and photographed the covers for John Lennon's two books In His Own Write (Simon & Schuster, 1964) and A Spaniard in the Works (Simon & Schuster, 1965) and the end credit sequences of their two films: A Hard Days Night and Help!.
Robert Freeman began printing and exhibiting his hand-signed, museum-quality photographs as limited editions in the late-1980s and early-1990s. He numbered his work in small editions, typically limited to 25 pieces (plus 3-5 Artist Proofs), and select pieces were available in 2-3 sizes. Each edition varies. All were sold by the mid-2000s.
This signed, limited edition photograph is SOLD OUT.
