The album is a piece of art too.
The cover art is by Jason deCaires Taylor an absolutely astonishing artist. Check out his site. Mesmerizing.
The Lost Correspondent
The Lost Correspondent depicts a man sitting at a desk with a typewriter. The desk is covered with a collection of newspaper articles and cuttings that date back to the 1970s. Many of these have political significance, a number detail Grenada’s alignment with Cuba in the period immediately prior to the revolution. The work informs the rapid changes in communication between generations. Taking the form of a traditional correspondent, the lone figure becomes little more than a relic, a fossil in a lost world.
The album also featured photography by Sonny Miller and to be honest I can't clearly read the photographer of the waterfall images (looks like Stephan Mentil) and google doesn't seem to know either (that's a first).
Anywho, maybe tomorrow I'll post about the killer art of Jason deCaires Taylor...it's worthy of its own post showcase. But now, I must sleep.....................
