Walking on Thin Ice by Yoko Ono

Fri 24 Dec 2010 - Written work

Making Double Fantasy was a great joy for John and me. But it was intense as well, since we were trying to finish it for the Christmas release. John knew what I was up against and protected me to the end. If it weren’t for that, the record would not have been a dialogue between […]

Kishin Shinoyama “Love Fantasy with John Lennon and Yoko Ono”

Tue 07 Dec 2010 - Events & Exhibitions

The photo that would become the cover art of “Double Fantasy” was taken in Central Park, right in front of their home at the Dakota House. There were only a few people around as John and Yoko sat on a bench by the pond in the autumn sunset, and I asked them to kiss each other. Three months later just as the album was finished, John was gunned down. I shot the photo in color, but for some reason, the actual cover art was released in black and white.
