As described by Carinthia West “Pink Floyd Animals The Pink Floyd decided to shoot the Animals album cover at Battersea Power Station in London using the brilliant photographic team Hipgnosis ( Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgerson) who had shot many of their previous albums. Hipgnosis organized a giant blow-up pig which was attached to ropes and supposed to float above the Power Station for the shot, but instead, it threw off it moorings and headed off on a lone journey across London. Everyone watched in horrified fascination and a certain amount of panic, to put it mildly. The Floyd had hired an ex-police marksman to shoot it down in such circumstances, but he had turned up the day before and hadnt bothered to return. Jumbo jet pilots, flying into London that morning, announced to their passengers on the right of the plane you will see the Houses of Parliament and on the left….a flying pig!. Luckily, the pig landed ignominiously and deflated in a field in Kent, much to the farmers surprise. To the best of my knowledge, I was the only non-professional observer with a camera on that day, and I took these shots as it was beginning to fly away on its independent journey.” Please note the print edition number will vary from the one visible in the photograph due to availablity at any one time.
