Holden Luntz Gallery and JL Modern Gallery recently presented an exhibition and book signing for Harry Benson’s latest book, Paul, on Paul McCartney at JL Modern Gallery.
Harry Benson began photographing Paul McCartney in 1964, when the Beatles took America by storm, toured the world, and made their movie debut with A Hard Day’s Night. The legendary photojournalist was on hand to document it all. When the Fab Four came to an end, it was Benson who had intimate access to Paul and his wife Linda, as Paul forged a new path, creatively and personally.
Featuring more than 100 color and black-and-white images, this collection is a window into the life of one of the world’s best-known recording artists, one who has remained enigmatic despite a lifetime in the limelight.
Harry Benson is legendary as a preeminent photographer. Over the last 6 decades he has created some of the most memorable images of cultural, political and artistic luminaries as well as documenting many of the greatest events on the world stage.
