When he was 18, photographer Mike Mitchell snapped these awesome black-and-white photos of the Beatles. The group was performing in Washington D.C. in 1964, around the same time as their Ed Sullivan appearance.
I love how these photos seem to capture the spirit of a Beatles concert (how fun must it have been to be among the thousands of screaming fans?), and as opposed to album photos and other photo shoots, you get an uninhibited, authentic glimpse of those cheeky boys just having a good time. How fun! xoxo
