Paul McCartney publishes book from 1964 photography

Paul McCartney publishes a new photobook this summer called 1964: Eyes of the Storm.

The book contains 275 of McCartney’s photographs from six cities – Liverpool, Paris, New York, Washington, DC and Miami – taken in 1964. The collection includes never-before-seen images of John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as The Beatlescareer starts to take off all over the world.

1964: Eyes of the Storm also includes a foreword by McCartney—”What else can you call it? Pandemonium”—as well as an introduction by Harvard historian and New Yorker essayist Jill Lepore. There are further essays by Nicholas Cullinan and Rosie Broadley. The book will be published on 13 June.

You can watch a trailer for the book below.

“Anyone who rediscovers a personal relic or family treasure is instantly flooded with memories and emotions, which then trigger associations buried in the mists of time,” McCartney said in a press release. “This was exactly my experience seeing these pictures, all taken over an intense three-month period of travel, culminating in February 1964. It was a wonderful sensation to be thrown back. Here was my own record of our first great journey, a photographic journal of the Beatles in six cities, beginning in Liverpool and London, followed by Paris (where John and I had been regular hitchhikers three years before), and then, what we considered the big time, our first visit as a group to America. “

McCartney’s pictures will also go on display for the first time later this year at London’s National Portrait Gallery. Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-64: Eyes of the Storm runs from June 28 to Oct. 1.
