Cynthia, Julian and John Lennon as photographed by Robert Whitaker in the dining room of the Lennon’s Weybridge home.  Cynthia with mop, Julian with gold spoon, and John with a workman’s tool. 1965. 

I thought John & Cynthia were brillant together. Despite everything that’s been said about them since, they seemed to be a perfect couple. This was at their home. I decided to shoot them as a kind of emblematic family. Cynthia with a mop, John with a workman’s tool, and Julian with a gold spoon, as the child who has been born into the rich set-up. We set it up as a kind of theatre-piece, and John loved it. As soon as he saw the hoe, he grabbed it and said, “I’m the breadwinner here, you know.”
