In the pictures, which I have selected, I have tried to capture not only beautiful faces, but also the look behind the faces — the experiences, what they had each been through. When I took most of the pictures, The Beatles weren’t famous at all. They were just young boys with great talent, wonderful humour and intelligence. What amazed me was, that behind all the outfits and rock and roll behaviour, they were very sensible, sensitive young men looking for something new in life, which was exactly what I was doing then in the Sixties. We were so confused straight after the war and we were searching for ways to exist and to accept everything that had happened. I hope that is what you can see when you look at my pictures.”
— Astrid Kirchherr
