A New York Gallery has announced the opening of a unique exhibit of previously unpublished photographs of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones captured at work and during everyday activities.
The British Are Coming: The Beatles and The Rolling Stones 1964-66, on display at Not Fade Away Gallery through April 14, feature photographs taken by Bob Bonis, their tour manager during the first three U.S. tours.
There are more than 50 photos on display providing a private glimpse into the early days of rock ''n'' roll. They reveal the musicians in candid, intimate shots on stage, in rehearsal, in concert, backstage, dressing and relaxing, on vacations and en route to shows.
Other images show them recording in the studio or at press events.
"The discovery of so many never-before-seen photographs of the two most influential bands in rock history, captured at the most pivotal time in their careers, is a once-in-a-lifetime event," says Larry Marion, founder and director of the gallery.
"In more than twenty years as a rock ''archeologist,'' I''ve never come upon a discovery of this magnitude."
He adds that the collection likely represents the largest trove of such important unknown photographs discovered to date.
In the near future, the gallery will make the images available for sale as museum-quality fine art photographic prints, in limited editions, printed on era-appropriate paper and using traditional photographic printing methods.
