Design duo Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell - better known by their collective name Hipgnosis - are renowned in the music world for creating iconic cover art for rock and roll greats. From Pink Floyd to Paul McCartney, Hipgnosis have been behind some of the most well-known and well-loved album artworks, shaping the aesthetic of the music industry since the late 1960s. This new series of limited editions brings the images back to life as archival inkjet prints, each one in beautiful, never-before-seen, clarity.
‘Ummagumma (Pink Floyd) features the original artwork from the 1969 Pink Floyd album of the same name. A smart, conceptually provocative piece, the image features the band, duplicated in multilayered processes. A first glance suggests that this is simply an image within an image, but closer look reveals that each duplication of the photograph is altered, the members of the band switched around in a hallucinatory mode, much like Pink Floyd’s chemically saturated music. Powerful and profound, ‘Ummagumma (Pink Floyd)’ is a must have for the Floyd fan, the retro music collector, and anyone with a keen eye for the iconic.
