An insight into Storm's creative and thoughtful process: 

“Ellis, Beggs & Howard was a band from the Eighties consisting of three very different characters- Steve Ellis, white from up North, Nick Beggs, lately of Kajagoogoo, white from down South, and Austin Howard, black from London but born in Jamaica.

"They liked the idea of marketing their ethnic diversity by calling their debut album Homelands - a musical homeland for whoever felt connected to, or even disconnected from, their real homeland. We came up with the idea that the edge of homelands, the borders between different tribal homelands, would be indicated by totems or masks representing different tribes.” - Storm Thorgerson
