A tenderness that belies their mythic Scouse upbringing


“On my desk I keep a tearsheet of a portrait of John Lennon and Paul McCartney taken by photographer David Bailey. There’s something about the photograph that captured then and still holds my attention to this day. Like all great photographs it’s hard to put into words why the picture is so affecting; in my case it’s a feeling about the quality of the relationship between Lennon and McCartney. There’s a tenderness there that belies their mythic Scouse upbringing in Liverpool. Looking at the picture, Lennon’s head tilts a bit to the right, while McCartney’s goes left; his head seems to float against the solid black shape of Lennon’s body. Each a part of the other”.
