Photographer David Alexander Releases Pictures Of Time #HeliumRadio
Acclaimed commercial photographer, David Alexander, built his reputation early in his career by creating album covers for The Eagles and Blues Brothers among other 70’s rock bands as well as movie posters for iconic films like THE TERMINATOR. He was responsible for the album cover photography of the 1978 Grammy-winning Eagles’ Hotel California. The front cover depicts The Beverly Hills Hotel at sunset. He shot the image 60 feet above Sunset Boulevard on top of a cherry picker with the light and unfamiliar vantage point giving it a slightly sinister look in keeping with the Album’s theme. A critical and commercial success, Rolling Stone named Hotel California the 5th best album cover of all time and the highest rated pure photography cover. Hotel California went on to incredible success, becoming a 1970s cultural landmark, cementing Alexander’s reputation in the entertainment industry and beyond. Alexander has now focused his attention on understanding the meaning behind images. In PICTURES OF TIME, he explores the intersection of science, art, and, perhaps, philosophy. Described as “photography that makes you think.” the images are arranged as a contemplation of time, raising thought-provoking questions such as what is time and can time really be seen? This beautiful tabletop book is filled with powerful images encouraging reflection.
