Unseen photos of John Lennon ready to be presented to Yoko Ono
Posted: August 11, 2014
A DOCUMENTARY photographer from Faversham is ready to present his photos of John Lennon to Yoko Ono.
John Stewart Farrier has now teamed up with Faversham’s Maihen Picture Framing Company, in West Street, to finalise the piece.
The photos of John Lennon were taken almost 50 years ago by Mr Farrier and were previously unseen until a few years ago.
There are twelve pictures of the former Beatle, the negatives of which were left undiscovered in a loft for around 45 years.
Mr Farrier discovered them towards the end of 2011 and they went on display for the first time earlier this year at The Proud Gallery in Chelsea, London.
He now intends to present the photographs to Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono at The Folkestone Triennial, where she will be featuring as an artist.
Mr Farrier has selected Maihen Picture Framing Company to frame his photographs for Yoko.
He said: “Most of my photographic framing is prepared in London, but I was delighted to discover a real gem on my doorstep in Faversham.
“Rachael Barrow offered infectious enthusiasm with great attention to detail which was paramount in selecting her with this very special framing assignment and I was delighted with the final result. She will most certainly be included in my forthcoming photographic show on Politicians at the end of the year.”
Mr Farrier will present the photos to Yoko at the event which begins on August 30 and ends on November 2.
