Description

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.”
