Philip was studying pharmacy in Liverpool in 1960s when The Beatles formed. Liverpool at this time was an exciting place to be for young creative types. It became a hub for musicians, poets and beatniks. Philip was there to document this extraordinary period of social and cultural history and capture the early days of the now iconic Fab Four. Philip’s Foundation was proud to bring an exhibition of his Recollections work to Liverpool for an exhibition during the European Capital of Culture, 2008.
We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow’s nest of that ship.
