BeatlesAbout this photograph
From 1960 to 1970, the Beatles had 12 albums and more than 200 songs to their credit. To this day they are still the group with the highest number of records sold worldwide. In 1961 Brian Epstein became mentor to the Beatles. He encouraged them to give up their leather jackets in order to get rid of their loutish image. Epstein decided to get them to adopt lounge suits and their characteristic haircuts. On 19th May 1967, the 4 members of the Beatles gave a press conference about the expected release of their new album Sergent Pepper?s Lonely Hearts Club Bands on 1st June. The image of the four cool boys had significantly changed. In 1966, the Beatles decided to stop playing in concerts. They dedicated themselves more than ever to composition and studio recording.Read more Read less

Created in 1927, Keystone was the first big photo press agency to have international offices (London, Berlin, New York, etcâ€¦). Since its creation, it has produced a number of stories covering the four corners of the world and all types of subjects (arts, sciences, everyday life, industry, great political, sporting and cultural events). Numerous collections were also acquired allowing a collection to be built up of more than 15 million photographs which show history, personalities and arts over a period from antiquity to this day and age (1985). From the Russian Revolution to the advent of the Third Reich, from the First World War to the Camp David Accords, the essence of the 20th century is illustrated in the Keystone collection.Reproduction prohibited / Keystone France Agency
