The original nude photographs of the late Beatles frontman John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which appeared on the cover of 1986 album Unfinished Music No 1: Two Virgins, have been put out for auction by Duke.
That night, before meeting, Lennon glimpses Yoko from a window. Lennon reveals to Derek that she sends him letters. While on their way to meet Bardot, Lennon tells Derek he sometimes thinks he is and, nervous about his meeting with actress, takes a tablet of along with Derek.
There was frontal nudity on die cover of Two Virgins, the first record they did together. They were artists. John had no problem with my idea, but Yoko said she didn’t want to take her pants off for some reason. So I said, “Oh, leave everything on.” I made a Polaroid of them lying together and John looked at it and said, “You’ve captured our relationship exactly.” He had just spent live years being what he referred to as a house husband, taking care of their young son, Sean, and the new album was his return to a musical career. He took me aside and said that he knew that the magazine wanted just a picture of him.

Their last album together released before his death was Double Fantasy, which came out in 1980, just three weeks before Lennon’s assassination.

In choosing photos for this blog, I usually shy away from really famous ones (Iwo Jima, the Time Square Kiss) because the chances are that most people not only have seen them but also know the backstories behind them (some probably even better than I do). So much ink have been also spilt for the above photo that I don’t want to add any more, and would let Annie Leibowitz talk about her own image: The picture of John Lennon and Yoko Ono lying on the floor together a few hours before he was murdered was ten years in the making. The first picture I took of John was my first important assignment from Rolling Stone, in 1970. Jann Wenner was going to New York to interview him, and I persuaded Jann that I should come too, mostly by explaining that I would be cheaper than anyone else.
After their nuptials, the couple traveled to Amsterdam. They stayed there from March 25 to March 31.
Image caption The pictures were for the Unfinished Music No 1: Two Virgins album Two rare photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono posing naked have been sold at auction for £700. The images of the pair were found in a loft by a couple clearing an elderly relative's home in Dorset. The photos, taken by Lennon using a self-timer at Ringo Starr's flat, were part of a series taken for 1968 album Unfinished Music No 1: Two Virgins. Auctioneer Matthew Denney described the images as 'most unusual' as they show more detail than the shots on the LP. The two pictures show front and rear views of the Beatle and his wife.
Westcoatt testified in August 1983 he poured gasoline on the apartment steps and lighted it. Police later found the photos in the safe of a now-closed restaurant, where one of the men sharing the apartment had placed them.
I flew youth fare and stayed with friends. Yoko said later that she and John were impressed that Jann let someone like me photograph people who were so famous. They were used to the best photographers in the world, and this kid showed up. But John didn’t treat me like a kid. He put me at ease.
