“Hiroshima”

Client: Arista Records
Album: “Hiroshima”
Art Director: Jean Marcellino
Photographer: Susan Chang

In this case, the name of the group was the same as the name of the album, and what a powerful one! Art directors usually much preferred creating cover art for unknown groups like this one. The stars often had “cover approval” written into their contracts, which was usually an invitation to disaster, design-wise. This assignment was sitting on my desk when a talented photographer just happened to wander by seeking work. I bought the photo right out of her portfolio on the spot!
