Ringo Starr and George Harrison began writing Photograph on a luxury yacht in the South of France in 1971. On the recording in 1973, Harrison added harmony and backing vocals.
A signature tune for Starr as a solo artist, Photograph was an international hit, topping singles charts in the United States, Canada and Australia, and receiving gold disc certification for US sales of 1 million. Music critics have similarly received the song favourably; Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic considers it to be “among the very best post-Beatles songs by any of the Fab Four”.
