‘I wanted to do a real experiment. People will jump to the wrong conclusions about it being sick, but the whole thing is based on simplicity, linking four very real people with something real. I got George to knock some nails into John’s head and took some sausages along to get some other pictures. I dressed them up in white smocks as butchers, and this is the result. The use of the camera as a means to creating situations.’ Robert Whitaker

‘We took the pictures in London at one of those photo sessions. By then we were really beginning to hate it. Photo sessions were a real ordeal, you know. We had to try and look normal and we did not feel like it. The photographer was bit of a surrealist, and he brought along all these babies, pieces of meat and doctor’s coats, so we really got into it, and that’s how we felt, you know’. John Lennon
