About the image
The front cover of Peter Gabriel's "Scratch My Back", a symphonic album released in February 2010. Photographer Stephen Gschmeissner discovered this image via a scanning electron microscope which uses a finely focused beam of electrons to construct a 3D image of each specimen that can be magnified up to a million times. Designer Marc Bessant, who selected the image, felt that the two objects symbolized "how sensuous the music was sounding with just the two elements - Peter and the strings."
