Paul McCartney Photographs Exhibit to Open at Chrysler Museum of Art On December 5th

Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-1964: Eyes of the Storm, will open on December 5th at The Chrysler Museum of Art. This exhibition contains 250 of McCartney’s images from December 1963-February 1964. During that time, McCartney used his Pentax camera to capture the Fab Four – John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and himself – as Beatlemania spread across the world. This exhibit offers an intimate and personal view into an iconic moment in rock history.

McCartney’s photographic curator and archivist, Sarah Brown, has collaborated onsite with Senior Curator Lloyd DeWitt to install the exhibition in Norfolk. McCartney, Brown and the National Portrait Gallery’s Rosie Broadley carefully selected the images for this exhibit earlier in 2023 when it made its debut in London

“Every picture brings back memories. I can try and place where we were and what we were doing to either side of the frame. Pictures of us with the photographers bring back memories of being in New York for the first time and being taken down to Central Park, the New York hard-bitten cameramen shouting out, ‘Hey Beatle, hey Beatle.’ We’d look at them and they’d take the picture. ‘One more for the West Coast.’ I remember all those stories,” said McCartney when interviewed by Christie’s last September.
