Description

Storm Thorgerson kindly provided the story behind the creation of this Pink Floyd imageray to St Pauls Gallery “Firstly the box had no front nor back in the normal sense, so two images were required – similar, for they referred to the same thing, but not identical, cos that would be dull. Secondly it was required to illustrate 14 albums not one single album, therefore not a theme, more a Floyd ethos type design, something general not specific, about the band and their musical outlook. We came up with the ‘mirror set’; a room in a house, a Pink Floyd room containing objects, instruments and photographs of Pink Floyd, arranged in a fashion reminiscent of Ummagumma and of Echoes, but now focusing on a mirror in which to reflect their history. This is an image heavily concerned with layers of perspective and of meaning, and as equally concerned with framing (a major visual preoccupation) as much as music is concerned with timing – if sound has (regular) timing it may be music, if a visual is framed it may be art. “In the end this design is basically a photograph of the band or is it? If it were a photograph of a mirror in a room where’s the camera? Simple trickery, I hear you murmur, but you don’t know that; easy, could be done by compooter but you don’t know that (it wasn’t). It’s a little mystery, mirroring the far bigger mystery of Floyds success, a mystery especially to them.” LIMITED EDITION OF 40 _ Very Low Availability – Sold Out From Publisher Signed and numbered in pencil by Storm Thorgerson Design and Photography by StormStudios Giclee print on Somerset tub sized 340gsm Print size 28″ x 29″, Image size 24″ x 24″
