Default Pictures of the Far East Tour, 1966

BEING backstage with The Beatles at the height of their fame is something most people can only dream of being able to do.

But when George Harrison invited the band's friend and official photographer Bob Whitaker to the Far East it was just another day at the office for the famous snapper.

Now an exhibition has opened at London's Getty Images Gallery, showing off Bob's rare all-access snaps from The Beatles 1966 tour of Japan and the Philippines.

Whether it's on the plane, preparing for a show or just chilling out with paintbrushes backstage - Bob captures life in the world's biggest band.

And you can see our favourite pictures of John, Paul, George and Ringo right here.


Bob said: "Looking back at the collection, it seems so strange. At the time, being there seemed so perfectly normal, just hanging out with The Beatles.

"I am delighted that these images will be shown in such an exciting new venue, which promises to bring the world’s best photography right to the heart of London’s creative centre."

The exhibition runs until August 21 at Getty Images Gallery, 46 East Castle Street, London. You can find out more by calling 0207 291 5380.

Here's the old topic. They're wearing different clothes than the picture on the back of that album, but I still think this is when they painted in Japan...
