Photographs of John Lennon have recently been discovered after having been hidden away for more than forty years. When Louis Gaudiosi, photographer on assignment for Rock Magazine met John Lennon and Yoko Ono, he recalls John and Yoko, lived in Greenwich Village in New York City before they took up residence in the Dakota on Central Park West.
The photographer, then a teenager in 1972, took limited, rare photographs of Lennon at home. The photographer’s career was cut short; he took only a few assignments before he retired from photography, so these images are scarce and have not been seen for nearly forty years.
Andes Art and Antiques, a small gallery in the tiny hamlet of Andes, New York, high in the Catskill Mountain range, not far from Yoko Ono’s summer home will exhibit these very limited, extremely rare silver gelatin photographs (numbered edition limited to 10) on July 2-Sept 5. The exhibit will be called “John Lennon. The Way He Was — 1972.”
