Permanent #1


This picture was shot for Permanent Records. Probably around the time they released Couldn't Love You More (September 1992). It was not used until April 1997 though, for the cover of The Very Best Of.

Cool About 1991

This scan was taken from the Cooltide program. It must be a promotional picture in use by Permanent Records but they never credited it to my knowledge. My guess is it was taken by Julian Broad.

Roberton 1984

Anton Corbijn

One of the most famous pictures Anton Corbijn took from John. The location must be the environments of his Roberton cottage. As to the date, it probably was taken late 1984 as the back picture of Sapphire (released November 1984) seems to come from the same session. Also it was used by NME in Richard Cook's review of Sapphire (where John provided the names of the sheep by the way).

Heathfield 1978

© Anton Corbijn

This is an iconic photo used for the cover of No Little Boy. It was taken by famous Dutch photographer and director Anton Corbijn, around March 1978.
First time it was used in print was in an interview by Bert van de Kamp in the Dutch music magazine Oor, published 8 March 1978. It was included in the book Famouz.
The picture also featured in various Corbijn expositions, for instane at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, April-May 1994.
