When John and Yoko went to live in New York in 1971, John met Bob Gruen, a well known rock photographer, who became his friend and neighbour. For nine years he was his personal photographer and this new exhibition from the Beatles Story helps to bring these New York Years to life.
The exhibition is filled with photos and reflections by Gruen on the circumstances surrounding the photos such as John's relationship with Yoko, the role of the band Elephant's Memory, how he dealt with fame, his first days with his son Sean, and how he spiralled downward on alcohol fuelled binges. It is a true behind-the-scenes look at Lennon as a performer, a legend, and a person.
John Lennon: The New York Years 1971 - 1980 forms part of the Beatles Story's main exhibition at the Albert Dock, the photographs and captions perfectly depict the final years of John Lennon's life within the iconic White Room.
