RIP Astrid, one amazing lady whose taste and art photography reverberated around the world with the advent of the Beatles.

Even after 43 years of trying I can't shoot anything close to how well she did at 19.

She was the one of the first photographers to take truly great photographs of the Beatles. More importantly, she always stood by them, never betraying the band, a la Peter Brown. I'm sure that she takes a lot of information to her grave.

Finally reunited with her dear Stu.
