Storm Thorgerson, world famous album cover artist for Pink Floyd, RIP

Music // Friday, April 19, 2013
We are sad to hear that Storm Thorgerson, the world famous and extremely influential album cover artist for the likes of Pink Floyd, Muse, Led Zeppelin, the Mars Volta, Black Sabbath, and just a ton more, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. Obviously, Storm's work with Pink Floyd is era-defining, creating a visual identity to one of the most visual musicians of the 1960s and 1970s. After working on an issue celebrating the power of album cover artwork (you will read that one soon), we feel honoring Storm today is important for our entire industry.

Nkoloso was serious and applied for a £7M grant from UNESCO and assembled a crew including a 17-year-old girl and two cats. The story inspired photographer Christina de Middel's series Afronauts and now filmmaker Frances Bodomo to shoot a short film. Watch the trailer after the jump...
