Scottish born photojournalist Harry Benson arrived in America with the Beatles in 1964. He photographed the Beatles' first and third US tours as well as their appearances in Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Paris. Harry was a contract photographer for Life Magazine from 1968 until it closed, under contract for People Magazine for almost 15 years and is currently under contract to Vanity Fair and Architectural Digest.

Harry has photographed 11 American presidents--from Eisenhower to Obama-- and was just feet away from Robert Kennedy the night he was assassinated; in the room with Richard Nixon when he resigned; on the Meredith march with Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights movement and has photographed a myriad of luminaries and world leaders ranging from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Winston Churchill to celebrities including Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood and Brad Pitt.

Harry has had forty one-man exhibitions of his photographs in the US and Europe including A 50 year major retrospective of his work at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh (2006); the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. (2007); and Kelvingrove Museum of Art, Glasgow (2008). He is the most acclaimed iconic photographer of the 20th century and beyond.
