In 2013, Ringo Starr put out a limited edition book combining photos from his archives along with writings about his life.
Photograph was originally conceived as a limited edition book of only 2,500 copies, which sold out within weeks. Two years later, Ringo Starr and Genesis Publications announce the ‘Open Edition’ – a more accessible and affordable printing of his book to be released in bookstores this September. The author is donating all royalties to the Lotus Foundation.
In Photograph, Ringo Starr reveals never-before-seen photographs and mementos from his archives, sharing memories of his childhood, The Beatles and beyond. Ringo’s lens captures his Beatles bandmates in pensive and playful moments, portraying them from the point of view of an insider, friend and skilled photographer. In an original manuscript of over 15,000 words, join Ringo growing up amidst the excitement of the emerging Merseybeat scene, as he remembers his first car, drum-kits, girls and bands on his ‘road of happy drumming’. From Pwllheli to Delhi, obscurity to superstardom, his travels are recounted with honesty and hilarity.
“I love pictures put together, showing different times of your life,” Ringo said about the book, “At the time, I never thought that there would be a whole book of my photographs.”
The book is set for a September 15 release in the U.S.
