Besides the fact that there is actually a compilation of George Harrison selfies in existence, it’s the shots themselves that that are so remarkable.
Using naught but lens, angle and exposure without effects, editing or adjusting, George Harrison’s 1966 selfies have a natural psychedelic feel.
The trip itself acted as major inspiration to The Beatles sound, ultimately transforming music forever, with the introduction and popularising of the sitar amongst pop music, thanks to the legendary Ravi Shankar.
The perfectly serene, scenic backdrops are bursting with life, showing a raw documentation of what inspired Harrison’s music to transform.
A couple of things we can take away from this is that these photographs are the very evidence of Harrison documenting his revolutionary journey of both musical and self discovery, and that selfies have in fact been a thing since 1966.
Plus in the half century since, I don’t think anyone has topped these.
