The Jack Robinson Story

Some readers may wonder, as I did, why so many previously unseen photos of Leonard Cohen taken 45 years ago have just now come back onto the market [at time of original posting: Jan 28, 2014]. The likely answer is that it has taken this long to catalog “a wardrobe … filled to bursting with prints, negatives, contact sheets, appointment books, back issues of Vogue and an address book stuffed with personal numbers of the famous” that Robinson left when he died in 1997 at age 69, so forgotten that no one claimed his body. The tragic but intriguing story of Jack Robinson is recounted at Jack Robinson: Gone In A Flash by Lucy Davies (The Telegraph: Nov 6, 2011)

Photos: Leonard Cohen, The Long Stemmed Rose, The Monkey & More – Amsterdam 2013

Worthy of special note in this impressive group of photos taken by Ad van Bever at the Sept 20, 2013 Leonard Cohen Amsterdam Concert are the images of Cohen holding a long stem rose and the shot of him cradling the monkey, which arrived on cue with the lines “And I thank you for those items that you sent me / The monkey and the plywood violin.”  There are more Amsterdam concert photos at Ad van Bever’s Facebook Page
