Storm Thorgerson's is best known for his album covers for Pink Floyd in the 80s - and his design for The Dark Side of the Moon (below) has been called one of the greatest album covers of all time. More recently he has created covers for the likes of Muse and the Mars Volta. He's famous for trying to do as much as possible 'in-camera', even in this age of easy digital manipulation.
