John Lennon & Yoko Ono

John Lennon, NYC - 1974
The US government was trying to deport John Lennon because of his support for the peace movement during the Vietnam war so I suggested we take a picture at the Statue of Liberty to illustrate that America was supposed to welcome people. Since Lennon's death, this photo has taken on a new meaning as people think of John Lennon in terms of personal freedom similar to the Statue of Liberty.

After taking portrait photos of John Lennon's face on the roof of Lennon's New York apartment, I decided to take more photos for publicity.  I had given John a NYC T-shirt a year earlier and with the skyline all around I asked John if he still had it as this would be the perfect place to wear it.  John went and put it on to make this now iconic photo.

While visiting John & Yoko’s recording session at the Record Plant in NYC, Mick joined John & Yoko behind a piano to sing along on a song Yoko had just written and they seemed to all have a lot of fun together.

In March of 1973 I drove John and Yoko to Greenwich, Connecticut where they wanted to look at several houses for sale. First, they stopped at my mother-in-law's house so they could relax and get used to being out in the country. They went out in the backyard where John and Yoko played around in a rowboat.

In December of 1980, I was taking photos of John Lennon and Yoko Ono at the Record Plant studio in New York where they were mixing Yoko's 'Walking on Thin Ice' record. They are posing in front of the guitar that John Lennon made as an exhibit for an Avant Garde Festival in the early 1970s. John pushed Yoko up against the wall and turned to me and said, "Get a photo of us like this. This is what people really want to see!"
