David Gilmour photographed by Kevin Westenberg for the 'Rattle That Lock' album campaign in 2015.
Kevin Westenberg recalls, "One of the penultimate shoots of my career. We did three shoots within quick succession centred on the campaign for David’s new album. My goal was to bring back the more enigmatic imagery of the Pink Floyd days. It was the least I could do out of respect for the man and his legacy. This man for me was a GOD when I was a kid, obsessive about The Pink Floyd. I STILL get deep chills watching ‘Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii’ which we would go see when it played at midnight showings stoned to the bejesus at our local Seattle cinemas around town! There are moments in Live at Pompeii of such perfection that I still can’t believe they exist. We anticipated every album release and bought on day of release at our local Tower Records.
In 1980, I organized to fly down to L.A. to see ‘The Wall’ concert which was the closest city those shows ever got to Seattle. 35 years later asked to shoot David for his album art and press for the 2015 album ‘Rattle That Lock’ I jumped at the chance. Above all, it was imperative to bring some mystery and depth back into his public image. The previous years were a mess of him just shot at or around his houseboat studio on the Thames. The 2005 Live 8 gig brought the happiness back when I got to stand on the side of stage as the original band members performed. Tears of happiness flowing once the first chords of ‘Breathe’ rang out. Perfection.
10 years on from THAT glory moment, the man is standing in front of me looking as imposing as ever yet with zero cynicism and open to all ideas. Pinnacle moment. This was a big risk proposing something as complex as this lighting set-up but it was equally important to the concept of the album art".
