'The Dark Side Of The Covers’ Some Re-Imagined Cover Albums

beat

I took me a little while to understand this picture above, what was this about? The surrounding looked strangely familiar, but these head tops give it all… of course! It’s Abbey Road! A guy (Harvezt) on Flickr re-imagined another vision of famous album covers, what he calls ‘The Dark Side of the Covers’, or if you prefer, what the cover would look like if it were viewed from a different angle, generally the back. It’s absolutely original as it replaces the two-dimension cover in a three-dimension world, a world it has never really occupied.

You can see the impressive collection here, and of course they guy took some liberty with a few classics: Who knew that Bruce Springsteen was actually wearing a Superman t-shirt on his famous ‘Born on the USA’ cover? Or that a creepy upside down skull was in fact laying on the same table than this candle on the cover of Daydream Nation’? Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ is as boring as the original and you may now know who has a close look at this unzipped pair of jeans on the cover of the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers’.

This is a totally original view of old classics, and there’s a lot of nostalgia involved in this, as if the author of this new art wanted to go back in time and be part of the scene that led to the making of the cover. Here area few examples, but check out the page on Flickr.
