Beatles first U.S concert photos taken by Mike Mitchell were said to be auctioned at Christie’s New York auction house on July 20, 2011, international news reported.

The concert photos of Beatles were said to have been taken when Mitchell was still 18 years old. Fifty prints from Mitchell‘s negatives were said to have been stored in a box for 45 years, reports said.

Mitchell, 65, who works as an art photographer in Washington was said to have used digital technology to do “much better ‘darkroom’ work that could ever have been done in a traditional darkroom.”

Simeon Lipman, head of Christie’s pop culture department was quoted saying that “Mitchell‘s black and white photographs were remarkable for their quality.”

“They’re very close-up, very animated. The light is very interesting. They’re very intimate shots,” Lipman added in an interview by international news site.

The images were said to be worth $100,000 but were said to be sold individually. Here are some of the photos taken by Mike Mitchell which were said to be auctioned on July.
