    20" x 24" print (the image size is 15" x 20" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 50 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

    In a candid moment of true backstage access, Paul McCartney and John Lennon warm up on their guitars in anticipation of their show at Olympia Stadium in Detroit, Michigan, on August 13, 1966. The two-show stop in Detroit drew a combined audience of 30,800 rabid Beatles fans and had an impressive set list: Rock and Roll Music, She's a Woman, If I Needed Someone, Baby's In Black, Day Tripper, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and Long Tall Sally. In this photograph, the creative energy between Lennon and McCartney is palpable. The legendary duo collaborated on some of the biggest records the world has ever seen, and did it all with a healthy amount of friendly competition. A writer for The Atlantic summed up their partnership best: "John was the badass older brother Paul never had. Paul was a charming sidekick who could do something rare: keep up with John." The pair are notorious for their own version of call-and-answer: John's Strawberry Fields Forever was answered by Paul's Penny Lane; John's Revolution 1 by Paul's Blackbird. And so, one of the greatest songwriting duos of all time was created - in competition and in brotherhood - and captured beautifully here.

    This photograph was taken by Bob Bonis, who was the U.S. Tour Manager for both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966. This is a Limited Edition fine art photograph, derived from the original negative or slide, and is printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in New York. Thanks to his unequaled access and gifted eye for composition, Bob Bonis captured thousands of unguarded, candid and iconic photographs of the two most important groups in the history of popular music. The majority of these images have never been seen or published and most are available here as Limited Edition fine art prints for the FIRST TIME!

    These fine art photographs are custom printed to order and require a high level of expertise and intense attention to detail, all delivered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York City. As these are not "off-the-shelf" items an order may take up to 10 business days to print and ship. Once printed each photograph is inspected to ensure a perfect print it is then hand-numbered and is embossed with the official Bob Bonis signature seal, as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate. It is then placed in a rigid acid-free acrylic sleeve to protect it from fingerprints and other damage

    Each photograph is accompanied by a package that contains the following documents:

    • A hand-numbered and signed Certificate of Authenticity from The GRAMMY Museum attesting to the fact that each print is derived from the original negative or slide, and stating the size and print number you have purchased
    • A Congratulations letter from The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The story of The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The backstory of your specific photograph or event information
    • Suggestions on framing your Bob Bonis Photograph

    Watermarks: The Bob Bonis Archive logo that appears on the lower right corner of the photos pictured above is only a watermark and WILL NOT APPEAR on the actual print you receive.

    What Your Actual Prints Will Look Like: Your actual prints are custom printed on either 11" x 14", 16" x 20" or 20" x 24" professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper, depending on which size photograph you purchase. Each print has the image centered on the paper, with a white border, and is hand-numbered with your specific print number and the edition size directly below the image on the left bottom side as shown in the examples below. The official Bob Bonis Signature Seal is embossed in the lower right-hand corner of the paper.
