The Beatles

“In 1960, aged twenty, I started working for one of Denmark’s leading newspapers taking sport, showbiz and crime pictures; back then you had to be an all rounder. After two years I went freelance and went into fashion photography, as well as taking celebrity pictures and photographs of the Danish royal family.

In June 1964 I began taking pictures of pop stars visiting Copenhagen – my first subjects were The Beatles, although Ringo was ill and they used Jimmy Nicol as a stand-in drummer.”
