Rare Beatles Photos Subject of New York Exhibit

Kevin Duggan - WZLX.com

Photographs from The Beatles’ first US tour are on exhibit in Soho, New York at the Morrison Hotel Gallery. The photos were taken by Curt Gunther, who was with the band for the entirety of the tour including behind the scenes, according to his son.

“He was there on every plane ride and in every hotel room. I think there was real, genuine affection between The Beatles and my dad,” he said.

Morrison Hotel Gallery co-founder Peter Blachley seems to agree with that statement, adding “You can see it in the photographs. There were no handlers. Just, ‘Hang out, you’re one of the band now.'”

Along with Gunther’s photos are a few photos taken by Robert Whitaker, who was very close to the band and was in charge of their bizarre photo shoots for the album cover of Yesterday and Today, which included toy dolls and raw meat.
