Astrid Kirchherr
1938 - 2020

IN MEMORY OF ASTRID KIRCHHERR

Astrid Kirchherr
Astrid Kirchherr is the photographer most closely associated with “The Beatles” in their early years in Hamburg.
She was responsible for some of the most haunting and stunning photographs of a young band that was literally going to transform the world of music as we knew it.

As with many of us, hers was a love affair with a young and in many ways innocent group of boys that took us all on a Magical Mystery Tour.
Her photographs recorded and captured The Beatle’s in the very early years of their career and there is no question her photographs will live forever and remind us all of a wonderful, innocent and unbelievably creative time in the world of music.

As she once famously said: “I meet them and my whole life changed in a couple of minutes. It was like a merry-go-round in my head, they looked absolutely astonishing. My whole life changed in a couple of minutes. All I wanted was to be with them and to know them."
I am sure all Beatle fans can relate to that comment.

Recently we received the sad news that Astrid Kirchherr passed away on Tuesday May 12th.
Astrid has been a great friend of mine and Silver K Gallery for many years.
We represented Astrid and her photographs in Australia for some 25 years before she retired some 8 years ago.
She was truly one of the nicest people I have ever dealt with in all my years in business and was a beautiful gentle person in every way.
When she retired she gave me a copy of the famous photograph showing “John in the Attic” with the dedication
“Thank you for everything – love Astrid”.

This hangs proudly over my bed at home.
Even as I write this dedication there is a tear in my eye.
This lovely lady  and her photographs have been part of my life and business
for so many years and was one of the main reasons I have loved being in this world of art and music.
Astrid was very passionate about her photography and wonderful to work with in every way.
We talked often on the phone and kept in touch from time to time though we had not spoken to each other for a while.
I wish we had. 

Astrid was without doubt one of the greatest photographers to ever work with The Beatles and her haunting and stunning  photographs will be remembered forever.
I am sure the general news service will have more to say over the coming days.
All I can say is “Thank you Astrid for all the joy and love you have provided”.

The Fallen - World Exclusive

WORLD EXCLUSIVE
A number of years ago Lucas Films released one of the most stunning Star Wars art works ever created .
"THE FALLEN"
“The Fallen” was presented as a beautiful standard size canvas edition and a wonderful paper edition.
The canvas was hand signed by the artist and both versions sold out within weeks of the release.
An unsigned lithographic poster was also created as a follow up and this also sold out very quickly.
For years clients have continued to ask for a signed version of this truly unique and classic Star Wars image.
 
Silver K Gallery is delighted  to announce that Lucas Films/Disney have now decided to publish this truly remarkable image in
a large canvas presentation hand signed by the artist - LARGE CANVAS  -  IMAGE SIZE 22 X 30 INCH.
