In 1964 Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler traveled from Hamburg to London to photograph The Beatles. Astrid already knew The Beatles well and had photographed them when they’d lived and worked, honing their craft, in the Hamburg clubs.
This new assignment for Astrid and Max involved shooting The Beatles on the set of A Hard Day’s Night and in their London homes. From there the pair traveled to Liverpool to photograph The Beatles’ haunts, other Liverpool groups, and to record lunchtime sessions at The Cavern Club. The result is an amazing archive of photographs.
Govinda Gallery first exhibited Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler’s photographs in June 1994. In the winter of 2000, Govinda Gallery exhibited Kirchherr’s photographs again along with the paintings and drawings by Klaus Voorman in the exhibit Hamburg Days.
