'Harry Benson. The Beatles and More'

The Lumière Brothers Photography Center presents Russia's first exhibition of photojournalist Harry Benson. He captured all US presidents, from Dwight Eisenhower to Barack Obama and Donald Trump. But pictures of the Beatles made Benson really world-famous.

Photos of the legendary Liverpool Four will be the exhibition's highlight. Benson worked with the band from 1964 till 1966, during their most productive and successful period. Harry Benson followed them, shooting concerts in France, their first trip to the United States and a performance during extremely popular Ed Sullivan's show, the Netherlands and Denmark tour. He also worked on the first film about the band 'The Beatles. Eight Days a Week'.

The exhibition will display legendary pictures, including photos of the band members with 22-year-old Muhammad Ali and 'Pillow Fight' included in the TOP 100 Most Influential Images of All Time by Time magazine.

"I want a spontaneity from my pictures. I like to let people be who they are. I don't want to tell them what they have to be," the photographer said.

Thanks to his energy, perseverance and curiosity, Benson always managed to get a unique material. His reports were the first to appear on the pages of Life, Vanity Fair, People, Time, Daily Express and The New Yorker magazines.
