Some people travel the world to make photos. Some people do it for musical reasons. Bob Egan combines both things.
Constantly looking for the origial settings where famous album-covers were taken. Some are very obvious. The Abbey Road in London. The one with The Beatles on it. Or another classic: Bob Dylan in New York.
Sometimes the artists are on the cover, and sometimes it’s just a place or an object. Bob Egan finds them all. Like the one above from an Oasis record. The photo was taken in London by Michael Spencer Jones.
