The Beatles in Rishikesh
Paul Saltzman shares his unusual experience with the Beatles at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in 1968. While no professional photographers were allowed inside the ashram, the Beatles had no objection to Saltzman's freely snapping pictures during their time together. As a result, The Beatles in Rishikesh unveils an exclusive, previously unpublished collection of photographs to complement Saltzman's personal memoir of this magical episode. As Stephen Maycock writes in his preface: "Some of the shots are the best I have seen, not only of this particular event, but of the many informally taken pictures of the group through the 1960s that have surfaced over the years... The intimacy of these frames is quite remarkable and the photos perfectly capture perhaps the most positive aspect of this Indian interlude: a newfound burst of creativity. In these few months, away from distractions and commitments back home, John, Paul, and George composed most of the songs for what would be the next album, entitled simply The Beatles but universally known as the White Album".
