London gallery to feature never-before-seen photos of Paul McCartney from Beatlemania era


A wealth of never-before-seen photos taken by Paul McCartney as the Beatles rose to worldwide fame will be on display in London this year.

The National Portrait Gallery announced on Wednesday that the exhibition, titled “Eyes of the Storm”, will help mark the gallery’s reopening in June after a three-year renovation.

Gallery director Nicholas Cullinan said McCartney approached the gallery in 2020 saying he had rediscovered a batch of photos from late 1963 and early 1964 that he thought were lost.

Cullinan said it was an “extraordinary” set of images “from such a famous and important cultural moment…taken by someone who was truly, as the title of the exhibit suggests, in the eye of the storm”.

“Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-64: Eyes of The Storm” opens June 28 and ends October 1.

The gallery is due to reopen on June 22. Other exhibitions planned for this year include a retrospective of 20th-century English photographer Yevonde, an exhibition of drawings by David Hockney and an exhibition of portraits by black artists from the United States and Britain.
