SOMETIME IN NEW YORK CITY is a tale of two people and one city: the romance of John and Yoko set against the vibrant backdrop of New York. The complete story is told in the words of Yoko Ono, Bob Gruen and John Lennon himself, and through the intimate photographs - mostly in full colour and previously unpublished - selected from the archive of Bob Gruen.
'Walk through the park and there are people holding hands and kissing. New York is beginning to look like Paris when I was younger, when I was twenty-four and people were holding hands and kissing under bridges. It's happening again. People are dreaming again.' JOHN LENNON
Photographs and words by Jürgen Vollmer
Beginning with recollections of his time with The Beatles in Hamburg in 1960, moving to Paris and an influential meeting with John and Paul, Jürgen Vollmer goes on to recount his experience of 1970s New York, life in Hollywood, and his return to Hamburg 30 years later.
For all those that Imagine Peace, INFINITE UNIVERSE AT DAWN celebrates Yoko Ono's seminal art and activism across eight decades.
