Pink Floyd, Tree of Half Life, 1997

By Storm Thorgerson
About the image
This photograph was originally intended for British alternative band Catherine Wheel, although it had a Pink Floyd feel to it. That's why it later served as the frontispiece of the "Mind Over Matter" book of Floyd imagery.

Amazing sight on the landscape. Where did it come from? Storm knows best: "The official story is that this tree profile head was achieved by helicopter topiary – a man hung from a ‘copter and cut the shape much as he might a hedge. Anybody who says different, who says the Tree Head was done on computer, is a telltale and a stinking rotten liar.” 

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.
