Project Description

Andy Earl made the instantly recognisable photograph of Johnny Cash that was used on the cover of the Grammy award winning 1994 album American Recordings. That photograph is now one of the best known images of Johnny Cash and became an instant icon. It shows Cash dressed in a long black coat, with his guitar case in front and a dog at either side, a wheat field as the backdrop and drama in the skies.

The album was hailed by critics and many declared it to be Cash’s finest album since the late 1960s.
