Full Title: Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon & Ringo Starr of the Beatles, taking a dip in a swimming pool
Celebrity: The Beatles
Photographer: John Loengard
Story behind the Image:
One of the world’s most iconic images and, arguably the most recognised image of a pop group ever taken, this 1964 photo of the Beatles taken by John Leongard is timeless.
As for how and why he took the picture in the first place, Loengard—who also served as LIFE’s picture editor from 1973 to 1987—explains,
“I went down to Florida to make this photo after being asked if I had any ideas on what to do with the Beatles as a LIFE cover,” Loengard recalls. “It was my idea to put them in a pool—but we couldn’t find a heated pool, the water in the pool we did use was cold, and there was always the problem of other press trying to get in. It would have to be a pool that we could close off to everyone else. So, in the end, it was a very quick shoot in a private pool, with the Beatles shivering and singing in the water before jumping out”.
