A Day in the Life: Shahrokh Hatami's Beatles Photographs Taken at Cavern Club, 1963

Shahrokh Hatami (1928-2017) was an Iranian photojournalist who covered front-page events from the revolution in Iran to the Beatles backstage as Beatlemania took off. A 1963 Paris Match assignment took him to Liverpool to meet the band.
