’Çí«Œ‚Working Class Hero? was a scabrous and angry track from 1970?s ’Çí«Œ‚John
Lennon/Plastic Ono Band? album, in which Lennon rants against his
’Çí«Œ‚They hurt you at home and they hit you at school, They hate you if
you're clever and they despise a fool, Till you're so f-ing crazy you
can't follow their rules, A working class hero is something to be.?
The picture was taken while John, Yoko Ono and their young son Sean were
on holiday in Ono?s home country, Japan.
Yoko Ono had given birth to Sean on October 9, 1975, and the trio made
repeated visits to Japan over the next few years. These trips were
documented by Nishi Saimaru, who acted as the couple?s personal
photographer and assistant.
Many of her pictures appear in ’Çí«Œ‚The John Lennon Family Album?, a
collection of shots from Lennon?s ’Çí«Œ‚semi-retirement? years.
