about the artist

Harry Benson CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) was born on 2 December 1929 in Glasgow, Scotland, and currently lives between Wellington, Florida, and New York (USA). From 1964 to 1966, he worked closely with The Beatles. The famous ‘pillow fight’ photograph taken at the George V hotel room during their French tour became one of the most instantly recognizable images of the band.

Benson’s pictures appeared on the pages and covers of Life, Vanity Fair, People, TIME, Daily Express and The New Yorker. In 2014, he took the official photographic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II commissioned by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
