Hi All

First time post so apologies if I've posted in the wrong section.

I was going through some of deceased (2009) father's bits and pieces, and have come across 25 or so negatives of John Lennon , 8 by himself in a studio environment and 19 of John and Yoko in what looks like an apartment in NYC... but could be anywhere. I realize my maths doesn't add up but a one or two maybe out of focus.

Looks like they from 1970, as there's a calendar on the wall showing Monday the 9th of Feb and there's only so many Mondays that fall on the 9th of Feb.

I know he had a couple of photographer friends that did shoots for Rolling Stone back in the 60/70s, all passed away by now I believe. If he had the negatives they would have been a gifted to him, he never mentioned them to me growing up so was a bit of a surprise to find.

So... I've no idea where to go to sell them on, or for what price? Any help would be appreciated.

I don't have any copyright on them as I just found in a box.

I contacted Omega auctions in Warrington, UK, who gave me a ballpark figure for auction (£1200) but no clue if this is the right way to go or is an accurate figure.

 

Thanks

That's amazing! @Zack so your father actually got to meet and photograph John?

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I wouldn't sell them if I were you, I would gift them to me.

Unfortunately he didn't get to meet the great man himself, it was one of his good friends whom he went to art college with that took the photos.

So I'm off tomorrow to the Beatles Memorabilia Day at 'The Beatles Story' museum in Liverpool to see if I can get an idea of what I've got. I'll let you all know how I get on.

I wonder if this BBC news report has anything to do with this thread?
