Unseen photos of The Beatles, shot by Paul McCartney between December 1963 and February 1964, are to go on show at the National Portrait Gallery in London when it re-opens this summer.

McCartney thought that the images in question had been lost, but rediscovered them in 2020.

The exhibition, Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-64: Eyes of the Storm, will run from 28 June to 1 October 2023.

The gallery’s director, Nicholas Cullinan, tells The Guardian that the images will offer a “uniquely personal perspective on what it was like to be a Beatle” at the height of Beatle-mania.

He continues: “The photographs taken in this period captured the very moment that John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr were propelled from being the most popular band in Britain to an international cultural phenomenon, from gigs in Liverpool and London to performing on The Ed Sullivan Show in New York to a television audience of 73 million people.
