Yoko Ono smiling at husband John Lennon. John whispering into Yoko’s ear. Yoko at a party with Andy Warhol. These are some of the personal moments artist Yoko Ono has made privy over at The Guardian, in a digital unveiling of some photographs from her personal archives, some of which date as far back as 1961. The timing is great—her show, “To the Light,” just opened at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

We were particularly interested in the photograph of the lion-wrapping event in London’s Trafalgar Square in 1966, in which she wrapped a large sculpture in cloth. The caption reads: “This is the wrapping event in Trafalgar Square. This was daring then. Now, it may look tame.”
