Sean Lennon & Girlfriend Recreate Iconic John Lennon Yoko Ono Spooning Photo
Sean Lennon and his model girlfriend have recreated the award-winning Rolling Stone cover photo of his parents, Yoko Ono and John Lennon. The original photo was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on Dec. 8, 1980, just hours before the former Beatle was assassinated outside his New York City apartment building, The Dakota, by lone gunman Mark David Chapman.
The image, which was initially shot to promote the release of Double Fantasy — Ono and Lennon’s first album together in five years — graced the cover of Rolling Stone’s commemorative issue to the music legend on Jan. 22, 1981.
While the iconic pic shows a clothed Ono being spooned by a naked Lennon, Sean and girlfriend Kemp Muhl switched roles for the Terry Richardson-snapped remake, which appears in the Fall issue of Purple Magazine.
Slightly NSFW image after the jump.
