PLUS ‘THE PHOTOGRAPH PORTFOLIO’ – LARGE FORMAT FRAMED ART PRINTS
Genesis Publications present Ringo Starr’s highly anticipated limited edition book PHOTOGRAPH. Earlier this year Ringo delighted fans by announcing he would be opening his archive to share a lifetime of photography. Now this stunning book explores that archive in full.
In over 15,000 words of brand new text, Ringo tells us the stories behind more than 240 pictures. Each copy of PHOTOGRAPH is traditionally hand-bound, numbered, then signed by the author.
‘I love putting pictures together to show different times of my life. I was just taking shots because I liked to take shots, and now it’s turned into this, which is great. Peace & love.’ – Ringo Starr
Ringo Starr shares his life story in a memoir illustrated with 300+ pages of stunning photography that has remained unseen for decades. Ringo tells first-hand what it was like growing up in Liverpool, discusses his time as a Beatle, and much more. PHOTOGRAPH includes childhood photos and memorabilia saved by his mother (that even Ringo didn’t know existed until now) and forgotten slides of The Beatles in Miami (that barely survived). Told in hundreds of photographs snapped all over the world, from Paris to Washington, India to Japan, PHOTOGRAPH is Ringo’s personal account of his life and work.
‘We made some incredible music. The songs are still relevant; the kids are listening to the music today. It worked. And there were many, many magic moments, when it really worked.’ – Ringo Starr
Ringo’s photography takes us on a journey through the decades, with letters and mementoes, beautiful black and white photographs, psychedelic special effects, stunning colour shots and retro 1980s polaroids.
‘These are shots that no one else could have. I just had the camera with me a lot of the time.’ – Ringo Starr
Ringo’s unique position and artistic flair has produced beautiful and intimate portraits of The Beatles, capturing sides of John, George and Paul that only a band mate would see – writing songs, having fun and lost in moments of quiet reflection.
‘This is how we saw most of the world when it got big for The Beatles: out of a car window, going to or leaving somewhere. That’s just how it was.’ – Ringo Starr
PHOTOGRAPH presents Ringo’s art in a craftsman-bound tome from Genesis Publications, with gold-edged pages and plenty of surprises inside.
‘Genesis did a great job on my first book POSTCARDS FROM THE BOYS – so why would I go anywhere else?’ – Ringo Starr
Ringo’s PHOTOGRAPH launches this autumn, with special events hosted in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Readers can find out more, and order now, at RingoPhotoBook.com. The book will be priced £345.
