Paul Saltzman - "The Inner Light: The Beatles in India"

Paul Saltzman is a Canadian based international award-winning film director, writer, and producer of over three hundred dramas and documentaries. 

In 1968, at the age of 23, he traveled to India for the first time as a sound engineer for a National Film Board documentary. Trying to find a way to recover after his girlfriend broke up with him (by mail), he ventured to the holy city of Rishikesh, at the foothills of the Himalayas, in the hopes of studying meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Coincidentally, the Beatles were there on their own meditation retreat and welcomed Saltzman into their inner circle. While there, he photographed the Beatles and their entourage, which included Donovan, Mia and Prudence Farrow, and the Beach Boys’s Mike Love. 

The Inner Light: The Beatles in India includes photographs that have been judged "some of the best intimate shots" ever taken of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. A documentary of Saltzman’s experience, “Meeting The Beatles in India” (Gathr Films), was released in 2020. Saltzman’s iconic photos will be on exhibit in The Carlton Room Gallery at The Betsy during the 2020/21 season.
