Published to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of John
Lennon's death, this previously unpublished collection of poignant
photographs is a record of one day with The Beatles-just after Sgt.
Pepper was released. In September 1968, critically acclaimed
photojournalist Don McCullin was invited to spend a day
photographing The Beatles in locations ranging from Paul
McCartney's garden to the banks of the Thames, as well as in their
recording studio. The timing of this was, in hindsight,
significant. The Beatles had just released Sgt. Pepper, Vietnam was
in turmoil, and riots had spread through America's cities and
campuses. It was the moment when the innocence and optimism of the
sixties darkened-the instant the youth movement, of which The
Beatles were icons, converged with the antiwar protests, the civil
rights movement, and the burgeoning counterculture. One of the most
poignant photographs taken that day was of John Lennon posing as
dead, surrounded by the other three band members. Lennon himself
carefully choreographed the image as a pose of protest, but it is
now seen as tragic and strangely prophetic. These images of four
inspired artists at the pinnacle of success and on the cusp of
transformation mark the passing of an era, and in them, we can
glimpse our own lost youth.
