Pink Floyd, Meddle Album Cover, 1971

By Storm Thorgerson
About the image
Storm Thorgerson originally proposed a close-up shot of a baboon's rear-end for the album cover photograph of 1971's Meddle. Pink Floyd then informed him that they would rather have "an ear underwater," which was used as the basis for the final design (with slight color differences on the original U.S. and Canadian issues of the album).

Lambda Release Notes:
In 2008, Storm and SFAE celebrated Pink Floyd's 40th anniversary with an exhibition of signed photographs of images that he had created for the band over the years both as a founding member of the design collective Hipgnosis, and as an independent designer with StormStudios. These photographs were produced as signed, open editions and were only briefly available for sale as they were intended only for the anniversary celebration. Very few of any of these images were produced.
