A Day in the Life of the Beatles

“The year was 1968, and the Beatles — deep into the heavy, divisive sessions for the self-titled record that would come to be called “The White Album” — were ready for anything that felt fresh and and provocative and different. And so when it came time to shoot a new cover for LIFE magazine, instead of calling on the celebrity and portrait photographers they had worked with many times before, the Beatles gave the gig to a guy they’d never met: Don McCullin, a Brit lensman best known for his war photography.”
