You know him as the photographer responsible for one Beatles album cover (two in the US); their last group photo shoot, and as the official photographer on the “Get Back” / Let It Be project (his photos filled the book packaged with the original issue). But Ethan Russell also produced iconic images for the Rolling Stones and The Who, as well as album covers and short films for an array of artists, plus wrote several books (including Dear Mr. Fantasy).
His latest is in the works as part of a Kickstarter campaign – check out EthanRussell.com for details.
In this first conversation, we present an overview of his life and career. More detailed Beatle-centric recollections will come in the second installment.
