Govinda Gallery is pleased to present Kaleidoscope Eyes: A Day in the Life of Sgt. Pepper, featuring Henry Grossman's rarely-seen photographs of The Beatles during the recording of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band, arguably the most iconic and influential album of all time. This is the first exhibition of Henry Grossman's remarkable photographs of the Beatles.
Taken during a single night's session--as the band recorded "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"—these photographs offer a compelling portrait of four of the most popular and publicized figures of the 20th century. Grossman's uniquely intimate account documents The Beatles' captivating individual personalities while attesting to their collaborative power at their creative peak.
Henry Grossman's career began in the early 1960s. As a contributing photographer for Time, Life, Newsweek, and People Magazine, Grossman covered a variety of important figures, including Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Nelson Mandela, Duke Ellington and Truman Capote. Grossman gained unprecedented access to President John F. Kennedy in the White House and abroad. Through his work he also befriended The Beatles and went to Abbey Road Studios to photograph them during the legendary Sgt. Pepper session.
This exhibition celebrates the publication of Henry Grossman's signed limited edition book, Kaleidoscope Eyes, Curvebender Publishing. Copies of Kaleidoscope Eyes are available through Govinda Gallery. Original limited edition prints of Henry Grossman's photographs are available to collectors through the gallery.
