Forgotten Beatles Photos Found After Nearly Half a Century

37 previously unseen photographs of the Beatles have been found after being forgotten for nearly half a century. Photographer Paul Berriff captured the photographs during a Beatles tour in 1963 and 1964 when he was just 16 years old, but the negatives ended up being forgotten for over 45 years along with 850 other negatives.

The photographs were created using two film cameras: a Rolleiflex and a 35mm Nikon, the latter of which he still uses to this day. Berriff went on to photograph many of the most recognizable artists and groups in the music industry (i.e. The Rolling Stones and Queen), and won a BAFTA award as a documentary filmmaker.

Berriff has set up a website called The Beatles Hidden Gallery where he is selling prints of the photographs. Only 49 prints of each photograph will be made.
