London (ANI): Legendary Beatles singer John Lennon's last photo
shoot with Yoko Ono has been made public - three decades after his
death. The couple posed for a set of intimate photographs to
promote his new album Double Fantasy. Despite many chances to
publish them after Lennon's death, photographer Allan Tannenbaum
kept them closely under wraps for decades.
He recalls that the historic photo session happened purely by
chance. At first, Yoko was hesitant, especially since the famous
couple had been out of the public eye for over five years but after
a coffee together she conveyed to Tannenbaum, "John feels
comfortable with you, so you'll come with us to the studio."
He also said that once at the studio, John and Yoko changed from
their street clothes to put on colourful kimonos, before slipping
out of them for the shoot. "I was thinking, 'I can't believe I'm
taking these photos. Nudity was just another form of expression for
them. They seemed very at ease and it was more of a show of
tenderness than a highly charged erotic situation, " the Mirror
quoted Tannenbaum as saying.
John and Yoko were delighted with the results of 'Double
Fantasy' photoshoot and even showed them to friends.
