When the photographer who shot the Beatles

captured the moment the Vietnam war came home

Michael Cooper was most famous

for shooting candid moments with the Rolling Stones

and the cover of the Beatles’ 1967 album

Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

and an inter-generational conflict opened up
