An early portrait of Paul McCartney taken in 1963. This image has been used in black & white on the cover of LIFE
magazine twice in recent years; once celebrating the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion and once for Paul's 75th birthday.
Hatami was sent to Liverpool by Paris Match
magazine to cover the Beatlemania phenomenon, where he managed to gain access backstage at the legendary Cavern Club and shot several amazing images of the "Fab Four" both together and individually, as seen here.
This photograph is from a portrait series capturing each of The Beatles individually, and it has been produced in one size/one edition of twenty-five pieces. The entire edition was printed, signed, and numbered by Shahrokh Hatami prior to his death in 2017.
This archival pigment print features a soft matte finish and is printed on soft white paper.
Out of this edition, only five (of each of the individual portraits) have been made available for sale as single photographs. The rest are reserved for sale as matched-number suites or portfolios - seen here: Fab Four Color Portrait Suite
