“In 1964, I was asked by a friend – Dick Lester – who was about to direct the first Beatles film ‘A Hard Day’s Night’, to photograph the film, not for press, but more from a sociological point of view,” explains David Hurn, when asked how he came to photograph the most famous band in the world, as they played themselves in ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. Over roughly seven weeks in 1964, Hurn witnessed the complete chaos that surrounded the Beatles, then at the apex of their fame.

This contact sheet contains The Beatles on the film set of ‘A Hard Days Night’. London, 1964.

David Hurn joined Magnum Photos in 1965.
