John Lennon & Yoko Ono 2, 1969
Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,
Talkin’ in our beds for a week.
The news people said “Say, what you doing’ in bed?”
I said “We’re only tryin’ to get us some peace!”
So wrote John Lennon in “The Ballad of John and Yoko”, released by the Beatles back in 1969. He was talking in the song about one of his famous “bed-in” peace events, staged with Yoko Ono during their honeymoon while on a visit to the city of Amsterdam. One of the people there to visually record what happened was Dutch photographer Cor Jaring. His shots he took of John and Yoko that day became world famous.
This photo is part of the solo exhibition from Cor Jaring in 2018 at Joseph & James.
