Harry Benson: Get the Picture, NYC

Scottish photographer Harry Benson has a knack for finding himself in the right place at the right time. When The Beatles went on their inaugural American tour in 1964, Benson was there, camera in hand, to capture it all, including the now iconic image of the four Liverpool lads having a pillow fight in their hotel room. He stole rare moments alone with the king of pop, Michael Jackson, captured Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow in disguise, and now a retrospective of his work is on show at Staley-Wise gallery through January 28.
