My husband and I taking a portrait at home. It didn't make the holiday card that year. If you are unfamiliar, the original cover of the Beatles record for Yesterday and Today looked like this:
From the Guardian UK : 'When Capitol released Yesterday and Today, cobbled together from other albums including Revolver and Help! the Fab Four, reportedly outraged that their art was being "butchered", posed for this photo. Capitol released it in June 1966, but faced with rejection by distributors, they had to recall thousands of "Butcher" LPs. Panicked, they rustled up a gloomy and unflattering photo - ever since known as the Trunk Cover - and pasted them over the recalled jackets. In that process, they created one of the holy grails of record collecting.'
Us, being fans of the music and the absurdity of the original photo had to recreate.
Shot on 35mm ultra color, with my trusty Nikon N65.
