The Mars Volta, The Widow Single Cover, 2005

By Storm Thorgerson
About the image
"The Widow is a song by The Mars Volta, a wayward jazz-rock band from the most dangerous border town in existence, namely Juarez. They are a couple of sweeties, and wrote an album that is like a film score but without a film. If I remember correctly an element of this story was about an orphan who was looking for his parentage, namely his roots, which is of course why he is going down the tree not up it! 

This picture was shot near Gatwick airport, where the rain has washed away the eart around the yew tree roots which clicng to a rock and become exposed, looking like something from a fairytale."  - Storm Thorgerson
