The official and verified Instagram page of The Beatles legend John Lennon has posted a rare photo and leaked a different hairstyle of him.

We are used to seeing John Lennon with his long wavy hair and round glasses, but in this picture, we see him with his short hair and sporty style.

Also, this rare photo of him was taken by photographer Astrid Kirchherr, at Hamburger Dom Funfair, Heiligengeistfeld Feldstrasse in Hamburg, Germany, in November 1960.

Here’s what the page captioned:

“Hamburg, 1960⠀

Photographer Astrid Kirchherr: ‘I didn’t have to tell them not to smile, they just knew. They only had to look straight into the camera. They were absolute professionals, even when it took a long time to get everything just right. No one got angry or said that they didn’t want to carry on.⠀

I printed them 32 × 40cm, large, and gave each of them the group photo. John, Paul, and George also got their individual photographs. It was like giving a carousel to little children: they couldn’t believe it because they’d never had pictures that big. I don’t think John ever realized he was beautiful until he saw them.’⠀

A fan named the_newspaper_taxi_ commented and said:

“I don’t think John ever realized he was beautiful until he saw them omg.”

Another user named liztalone wrote:

“Some of the most iconic, awesome pictures of the band. The one of John sitting on the jeep with his guitar I’ve had framed and in my home for over 30 years now…”
