Rare unseen John Lennon shots go on public display

Saturday, May 03, 2014

Twelve previously unseen photographers of John Lennon before he hit the big time in The Beatles, have gone on show at a top London gallery. The collection were taken more than 45 years ago by John Stewart Farrier, a documentary photographer from Faversham. The images will go on show at The Proud Gallery in Chelsea’s King’s Road.

The 24”x 30” silver gelatin photograph is a composite collection of twelve black and white images of John Lennon taken on a Rolleiflex camera. The photographer said: “I am delighted with this exhibition. It has already generated enquiries from around the world, including Australia.” The snapper will be presenting a framed photograph to Yoko Ono, Mr Lennon’s widow, during her exhibition event at the 2014 Folkestone Triennial. He added: “I expect this showcase collection of photographs will come as a delightful surprise for Yoko.” John Lennon was shot dead by an obsessed fan outside his apartment building in New York in December 1980. He was just 40.
