“The Dark Side of the Covers” Iconic Album Art Reversed by Artist Harvezt

The Beatles – Abbey Road

Many artists have reimagined famous album covers over the years, but I don’t think there’s been a series as impressive as this. Artist Harvezt has painstakingly created the other side to many iconic album covers, revealing what the reverse shot would look like if a camera had been placed in the background of the original cover. It’s quite remarkable the way the artist matches perspectives, colours, even illustrative styles. Have a look at more famous covers from a completely new perspective below!
