Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


Self Portrait - 1969

John and Yoko were still involved with their own "home movies" and produced 'Self Portrait' which was a slow-motion sequence of John's penis in a semi erect state. The film was 42 minutes long and was premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London in September 1969. Two years later John recalled the film on a BBC television interview with Michael Parkinson; "That was a joke really. I made a film called 'Self Portrait', you know, and at that time I was a bit of a prick!". Yoko had said "The critics wouldn't touch it"
