Until today I knew very little about Harry Benson but was familiar with his work. I am sure this is true of many…
Thanks to Netflix having the movie of his career Shoot First in its archives, I’ve really gotten to learn more about this enthusiastic, natural and fortunate photographer.
He’s truly had an amazing career and his photography spans all genres.
Most notably known for his photos of the Beatles at the height of their fame, this only scratches the surface of his work.
I’ve treated myself to an early birthday present and purchased a second hand edition of Harry Benson: Fifty Years in Photography.
Watch the trailer to whet your appetite, even if you are familiar with his work, I highly recommend this film. It’s such a fantastic document of modern life.
I’m not sure if I’d have Harry’s guts or opportunity but I am certain I can learn so much from his work.
I look forward to studying the book when it arrives.
