George Harrison & John Lennon, Nails, London, 1966

By Robert Whitaker
About the image
This portrait of George Harrison banging nails into John Lennon's head with a hammer was taken on March 25, 1966. It was part of the famous "Butcher Sleeve Session," a series of surreal photographs that played on the band's celebrity. Photographer Robert Whitaker explained that the picture was intended to demonstrate that the Beatles were not something to be worshiped, but people as real and substantial as "a piece of wood."
