Yoko Ono in Liverpool with Skyladders

Portraits 20 Oct 08

Yoko Ono was in Liverpool on Sunday to visit her ‘Skyladders’ installation at St Lukes church. Its grown since I first saw it. Essentially the idea is that you drop off a ladder with a personal message on. Ladders aren’t just things for standing on while you remove wallpaper, they are steps that take you one bit closer to the sky.

    Wonderful portrait and harmonious post processing.
    But who’s grown? Yoko or her installation? ;-)

    Great portrait. The way you have captured her eyes behind the sunglasses is wonderful. In a way very Yoko Ono and very sophisticated and at the same time a bit shy – it creates a wonderful atmosphere.
    The ladder project is interesting, what a nice idea – and you photo with all the ladders in the background and her eyes to the sky is very well composed.
    Excellent!

    @Garp – It was a press photo call. She was there for less than 10 minutes.
