Hipgnosis was the brainchild of famously tetchy graphic designer Storm Thorgerson (1944-2013) and ingenious photographer Aubrey “Po” Powell, a collaboration born of London’s swinging ‘60s scene. Together they created some of the most iconic album covers in rock history (The Dark Side of the Moon, Houses of the Holy, Band on the Run). SQUARING THE CIRCLE — directed by filmmaker/music photographer Anton Corbijn (CONTROL) — immerses us in the audacious visual concepts that were their signature. Featuring dishy interviews with Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the three surviving members of Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, and more. And yes, the businessman pictured on fire on Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here is actually on fire. Pre-photoshop artistry meets global cultural seismic change.
