Mercury 1960’s Super Sound Stereo Series

What to do with a fish-eye lens? In the 1960’s album cover art went on to a new standard in art and photography. Beat groups were pictured in modern style poses and of course new possibilities of the camera were used, like fish-eye lenses. In this series you see the influence of fashion photography on album covers. With new hip clothes the ladies look very cozy and adventurous. The music was mainly orchestral and big band, but also classical music lovers wanted something modern! The pictures were taken by Dutch photographer Bart Mulder. He was of less fame than Paul Huf, but he was a much asked photographer by Philips and related labels that later became known as Phonogram Music.
