Ringo Starr Discusses His Passion for Photography as the Beatles’ Drummer


Ringo Starr is best known as the rock star drummer of the Beatles, but he was also a passionate photographer who documented the life of one of history’s biggest bands first hand. The video above is a 9-minute short film titled “Ringo Starr: Photographer.” Made by portrait photographer Mark Seliger for Rolling Stone, it sheds light on Starr’s “other life’s work.”

“I think I really got more serious about it, more excited and interested in it, in the Beatle era,” Starr says about his work with a camera. “Photography became my passion alongside playing, really.” As we shared back in July, Starr just published a new book of his images titled “Photograph.”
