Astrid Kirchherr is best known for her photographs of the Beatles during the early Hamburg days and for her association with the Beatles’ original bass player, Stuart Sutcliffe.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view a remarkable collection of photographs that capture a seminal moment in popular culture and in Liverpool’s history. It features over 70 images covering her career from 1960 until she ultimately abandoned photography in 1967
