FREDA, SHEILA, MIDRED, MURIEL -
"Alone in the night as the daylight brings
A cool, empty silence
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky
It fades to the distance"
Vienna, from the album Vienna by Ultravox
STORY OF PHOTO
This album cover recreation was the fourteenth photo in the Care Home Album Covers series and was a result of Robert being contacted by musician, singer-songwriter and producer Midge Ure. The lead singer of Ultravox requested via Twitter that Robert cover the album which was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Robert duly obliged with a complex set-up using four residents in varying positions, all in one photoshoot. As Midge commented on seeing the finished album cover recreation "Utterly, utterly brilliant Robert".
