B39636 – Genesis Publications Michael Cooper Blinds & Shutters 30th Anniversary Book (UK)


Blinds and Shutters is a limited edition Genesis Publications book containing Michael Cooper’s superb photographs of The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. It provides a unique insider’s view of the Sixties, a prolific and exhilarating period of artistic cross-fertilisation. Through his association with Robert Fraser, the Stones and The Beatles, Michael met the artists, writers, poets and musicians of the time and the courtiers around them. He introduced these people to each other. Many of those who brilliantly lit up the decade on both sides of the Atlantic were photographed by Michael. His most well-known photographic assignment was the album cover for The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
