Some of photographer Henry Grossman's images are now available for sale. A couple of links:

New York Times piece

Rock Paper Photo

 

And this is the email I got from RPP that has a bit of additional info not at the site:

Undiscovered gems from the mid-60’s shine a personal light on the world’s most famous foursome
For the past four decades, most of the images in Henry Grossman’s Beatles archive — a staggering 7,000 photographs shot between 1964 and 1968 – were never published or made available for purchase. As a measure of its historical significance, Henry's Beatles work was the subject of a major piece in The New York Times on January 1st.

Today, thanks to our ongoing collaboration with this accomplished photojournalist, Rock Paper Photo announces the exclusive release of a new collection of limited edition prints documenting some of the most intimate moments with the band members captured by any photographer. Each image can be purchased online as an archival pigment print, numbered and hand-signed by Henry Grossman.

Henry’s portraits of world leaders and cultural icons have appeared on the covers of Time, Life and Paris-Match. His close relationship with The Beatles began in early 1964 when he photographed the band’s historic performance on The Ed Sullivan Show. By 1965, he had become a trusted friend and companion, traveling with the group to The Bahamas and Austria during the filming of "Help!" Over the next three years he was invited into their homes in the UK where he photographed them time and again.

Rock Paper Photo’s new collection contains many previously unseen gems. Favorites include images of John flashing the “peace” sign riding a skateboard during a break in film production, and George at home aside his beloved Aston Martin.

Henry arranged visits with the band members on stopovers from other assignments he had in Europe. As he told The Times, their home phone numbers changed practically daily to stay one step ahead of rabid fans, so the only way for Henry to get George's "phone number du jour" was to contact the band's office. That's how trusted he was.

Formally trained in opera and theater, Henry approached the Fab Four not as a fan but as a confidante and low-key observer.

"They were accustomed to seeing me with a camera, documenting everything that went on around me," he says. "It was simply part of me, part of who I was. More than that, I had become a friend. So when I pulled out my camera, no one thought twice about it. No one cared. It wasn't seen as invasive."

Now all Beatles fans and collectors have Henry to thank for pulling off that photographic feat with such artistry and grace.

Cant copy and paste but check out number 17 George with guitar in Bahamas. Or #19 George and Pattie.

And Ringo sitting like a god with bikiki-clad woman all around him is such a fun pic.

 

On a side note there is a pic of Ringo dated 1967 (#5) without a moustache, i thought he had a moustache throughout the year – from the recording of pepper thru to MMT. It looks to me to be from 1965.

He did have a moustache throughout the year, that picture is definitely 1965. Looks like it's from Help, the part where Ringo was in the trunk of that car.

In #18 Ringo doesn't have a 'stache, and I thought he had one throughout '68 as well. Maybe sometimes he shaved.

Ah, right, good catch.

Ringo no 'tache from 1968, well looks like he's growing it back.

And the Hey Bulldog promo he also has no tache

I had to really think about that and do some digging as most of the '68 pics he does have a moustache. Ringo seemed to shave it off, grow it back, keep it for a while, shave it off, grow it back, and then keep it for the Candy film (not Candyman, thats a different type of movie) and Get Back filming in Jan 1969.

The weird life of a beatles forum – the history of Ringo Starr's moustache throughout 1968.
