In case you don’t know who the late Storm Thorgerson was, just know he was the master mind behind the iconic rainbow prism on the cover of Pink Floyd’s album, The Dark Side of the Moon. Best known for his harsh collages, Thorgerson lead the way in album art, using eye catching art instead of mundane pictures of the band, and creating album covers for bands such as Led Zeppelin, Genesis, the Cranberries, Styx, Phish, and Muse. His photography is even more surreal because he actually sets up the shots in real life. For Pink floyd’s album, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, he set up 700 iron hospital beds on a beach and placed them in rows stretching out to the horizon.
