Auction: Complete Astrid Kirchherr Beatles archive, including copyright

Astrid Kirchherr, born in 1938 in Hamburg, showed early interest in dress designing and photography. She was introduced to the Beatles at the Kaiserkeller Club there by her-then boyfriend Klaus Voormann, who later designed the cover for the Beatles' album "Revolver." Kirchherr began taking photos of the pre-fame Beatles. The photos were characterized by the stunning professional look they gave to the group.
Now the 73-year-old snapper is selling her entire Beatles collection – over 600 photos complete with copyright and negatives at Guernsey’s auction house in Manhattan, between 24th and 25th September, 2011.

Details of the lots can be found here.
