Photo Analysis: The Beatles Abbey Road Album Cover

Satisfactory Essays
The photo I chose was The Beatles abbey road album cover. This photo is iconic because it is the album cover photo for the last album they ever produced in 1969. I also like the photo because the story behind it and how it was taken. The photographer that took the photo is named lain Macmillan. He is a Scottish photographer that moved to England to become a professional photographer. He was only given 10 minutes to take the photo while he was on a step ladder and police held up the traffic behind them. It was one of the last albums the Beatles put out before they split up and abbey road is now a famous road in the UK. Everyone knows the picture on the album.
