Published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ second and final motion picture Help!, this almost entirely unpublished collection of photographs marks a pivotal turning point in the band’s history, as they evolved from much-loved musicians into the most important group of all time.
Specialist set-photographer Emilio Lari was invited by director Richard Lester to shoot stills of the filming at Twickenham Studios and document behind the scenes as the band relaxed in their hotel between takes. With an introduction by Lester and intimate never-before-seen images, The Beatles: Help! provides new and fascinating insights into the band that changed the history of music and the world.
