The display also will mark the unveiling of a portfolio of previously unseen photo prints by Starr, as well as additional series of pics first made available in 2013 and 2015.

The Photograph Portfolio 2018 includes candid pics of Starr’s Beatles bandmates — John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison — as well as a famous shot Ringo took of some excited Fab Four fans in a car during the group’s first visit to New York City.

Visitors to Genesis House will have the chance to buy museum-quality prints of various images snapped by Ringo over the years. The exhibit will be open for viewing by appointment on weekdays, starting Monday, February 5.

In related news, Starr has launched a contest offering a signed and framed limited-edition print of a photo from his 2018 portfolio called “Greece,” taken in July 1967 during a trip that The Beatles made to the Mediterranean country. Money raised by the contest will benefit the WaterAid charity’s Untapped appeal. Starr is a longtime supporter of the international organization, which helps people in underprivileged areas by providing access to safe water and toilets. The more money you donate to the charity, the better your chances of winning the contest, which runs through January 31.
