Carinthia West took this photograph in 1975 at the Pink Floyd 'Animals' album cover photo shoot that was put together by Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell). The image is very rare in that it features the inflatable pig still tethered between the chimneys of Battersea Power Station in London. Even Hipgnosis did not manage to get a shot of the pig in situ before it broke its lines and floated away. Hence on the 'Animals' album cover, the pig featured is actually a cut and paste addition. Carinthia West was present at the shoot with Pink Floyd's tour manager Robbie Williams who features in one of the out take photos. This really is a beautiful and rare photograph of one of Pink Floyd's most memorable and popular album covers.
