Michael Cooper's superb photographs provide a unique insider's view of the Sixties. It was a prolific and exhilarating period of artistic cross-fertilization. For the first time in Britain the class barriers were really down; in London, everyone seemed to know everyone, and we were unaware how close The Rolling Stones and the Beatles were. Through his association with Robert Fraser and the Stones and The Beatles, Michael met the artists, writers, poets and musicians of the time and the courtiers around them. He introduced these people to each other. Many of those who brilliantly lit up the decade on both sides of the Atlantic were photographed by him. His most well known photographic assignment was the album cover for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
A beautiful set and scarce when signed by George Harrison.
