The latest photograph book by Ringo Starr A Day in the Life published by Genesis Publications brings together a bunch of photos and musings by the Beatle, capturing moments that you might not necessarily associate with Starr. Pulling together pictures from his drumming career plus oddities from around the world this is an interesting delve into the mind of one of the great showmen.
You might expect with a member of The Beatles that any associated release would entail anything and everything to do with the Fabs. It is however interesting and refreshing to see a book that isn’t all about the screaming fans and how many sessions were played in Abbey Road, rather we get to see an altogether different side to Starr.
There are pictures of delicate flowers spawning from the spring season, pictures of fruit, different peace signs from around the world, artistic pictures often depicting psychedelic images, various images of Starr hanging in and around his well-known friends including McCartney, Joe Walsh and many more. We also get to know that Starr likes apple pie, just shame the book doesn’t come with a free sample.
Yes the book is not your traditional book that you might be expecting but it is entertaining, enlightening and refreshingly delicate in parts with the colours being particular attractive to look at. As you flick through the pages this could hopefully give ideas to other budding photographers in the making who want to have their images depictive in the stars with diamonds.
Another Day in the Life can be purchased from the Genesis Publications website
