Paul McCartney announces new photography book, 1964: Eyes Of The Storm

Paul McCartney announced a new photography book featuring 275 never-before-seen images taken by the former Beatles himself.

Title 1964: Eyes of the Stormthe project offers an intimate look at the months towards the end of 1963 and the beginning of 1964 when Beatlemania took off in the UK, and the FabFour gained worldwide fame after his first trip to the United States.


The photographs shown are McCartney’s personal record from this historic period of music, and were filmed in six cities: Liverpool, London, Paris, New York, Washington, DC and Miami. Fans will see many never-before-seen portraits of John Lennon, george harrison and Ringo Star.

In its foreword and introductions, macca recalls the “what can you call it – pandemonium” of this period of his career and conveys his impressions of Britain and America in 1964.

The idea for 1964: Eyes of the Storm was born in 2020 when “an extraordinary treasure of almost a thousand photographs taken by Paul McCartney on a 35mm camera was rediscovered in his archives,” according to a press release.

In a statement, the music icon said: “Anyone who rediscovers a personal relic or a family treasure is instantly flooded with memories and emotions, which then trigger associations buried in the mist of time.

“That was exactly my experience seeing these photos, all taken during an intense three month period of travel, culminating in February 1964. It was a wonderful feeling to be immersed in right away. »

McCartney continued: “Here is my own recording of our first great voyage, a photographic diary of The Beatles in six cities, starting with Liverpool and London, then Paris (where John and I had been ordinary hitchhikers three years before), then what we considered the highlight, our first group visit to America.

The book also includes an introduction by the Harvard historian and New Yorker essayist Jill Lepore, a foreword by Nicholas Cullinan, director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, and an essay by senior curator Rosie Broadley.
