DREAM LOVERS: JOHN AND YOKO IN NYC
The life, death and music of John Lennon have shaped the world. His reputation as a philanthropist, political activist and pacifist influenced millions worldwide. If Elvis was the King, Lennon was his rightful successor – and fittingly, several images in this collection of classic and unseen photos show him wearing a diamond-studded “Elvis” pin over his heart in homage to his ancestor on the throne of rock ‘n’ roll. John Lennon is seen here at several sessions in New York, performing on stage, relaxing at home, and walking down the street with Yoko Ono.
Renowned photojournalist Brian Hamill provides his own insider’s look at this Beatles icon with intense, intimate photo portraits and insightful text. Whether Lennon is commanding the stage, posing on the roof of the Dakota Building, or relaxing with Yoko Ono, Hamill’s photography reveals this quasi-mythical figure from the world of rock ‘n’ roll as the man he really was.
