    Ditto. It irritates me that only an overpriced version of this book was published. Why not a cheap version for all of us plebes?

    Harrumph.

    Who did Grossman work for when he took these pictures?
    Why wasn’t he required to hand over the ‘contract work’?
    Is there a statute of limitations on ownership of photographs? Did these images fall out of legal protection, somehow?
    How big is Apple’s slice?

    Nevermind, all of that!
    Why did Grossman have a change of heart?
    (more to the point:)
    Why did he hide these for 50 years?
    It sounds opportunistic to me…

    Maybe, Grossman was waiting for the ‘middle-class’ to become extinct…
    Colonialism is alive and well…
    (give Grossman a Pith Helmet)
    Get Well Soon, Henry

    I don’t think it’s as complex as that Kwai, some people just have treasure troves that are stored away, especially if they have a body of work that includes many other big names, ie Harry Benson (i think), photographed the Fabs, but was also well known as JFK’s photographer. I don’t see how waiting fifty years is opportunistic, anything but. Whatever the case may be, far ansd away Henry’s photo archive, and the release of this book and prints is the biggest find, and treasure trove of Beatle photos in recent, and not so recent times.

    @Tammy…
    I don’t mean to sound angry at Henry…I’m not! I can’t buy the book and I have no preconceived notions about him. So, the comment sounds harsh when it wasn’t supposed to. My questions are all legitimate. I was thinking he was an unknown-gone-rogue…never turned over the negatives and waited for the material to go public domain.
    I’m sorry, Henry. I meant no harm. The pictures are beautiful.

    It’s okay Kwai, i know what you mean, just putting my spin on it. The only thing i wish, is that it was sold as a trade edition, i’m certain they’d have sold a ton more copies that the deluxe set, priced pretty much out of reach for all, then again, mr ‘Living in the material world’ George Harrison mastered that game :-/
