I did research for the Airship album cover artwork, today, and I was reminded of Willard Morgan‘s photographs of the Hindenburg. Are they not incredibly good? He expertly captures the elegance and enormousness of the airship. The abstract shapes, the high contrast, the way there’s just enough visual information for you to picture the rest of the giant… I fall in love with these photographs, every time!
