Just published is a new video, showing an edit of Jill Furmanovsky in conversation with Storm Thorgerson from the nice people at Rockarchive. For those who need reminding, Jill is one of the world’s top rock photographers, and first took pictures of Pink Floyd back in January 1972, when she was backstage at the Floyd’s Brighton Dome concert. Since then she spent time with them on the road in the 1970s, taking many iconic and also endearing shots. Her stunning picture of David Gilmour on top of The Wall in New York in 1980, grainy and black and white, is the defining image from those concerts. A few years ago, she sat down with Storm to ask him about his various covers for the band, and you can see the result now:
