23 West Smithfield is the former London address of Farringdon Studio. This was the location of photographer Robert Whitaker’s first assignment with the Beatles in late 1964. After Robert Whitaker had held a session with the Beatles at Abbey Road, he was enlisted by NEMS to schedule a session here, which was carried out in October 1964. Pictures from the shoot apperared on the cover of the U.S. album Beatles ‘65 and in the U.K. on The Beatles Million  Sellers EP that came out in December 1965.

When Beatlemania exploded, Whitaker was along for the wild ride. He was backstage, he was in the studio, he went to the boys’ homes, he became their friend. Robert Whitaker devised many of the iconic Beatles images, and his pictures were taken during one of the most popular periods in the band’s history. Robert Whitaker created his most famous and enduring work with the Beatles, especially with John Lennon, who had become a close friend. He spent two years travelling with the band and shooting them at work, on their tours, in their homes, in the recording studios, in rare candid, private moments as well as in more formal photo-sessions.
