The Beatles by Robert Whitaker
Photographer: Robert Whitaker
Location: Weybridge, England
Iconic photo of John Lennon with a dandelion in his eye, fondly known as 'Adoration'
Photographed in the garden of his Weybridge home, the year that the Beatles received their MBEs - in recognition of the worldwide 'Beatlemania' phenomenon. John Lennon had a taste for the bizarre and surreal in the visual arts, and in the presentation of his own image. Robert Whitaker claims this as one of his favourite images and acknowledges the inspiration being a meditation on Narcissus and a remembered quote from 'Euripides referring to flowers in people's eyes'.
