The Sandinista! LP cover photograph (1980)
An archivally processed silver gelatin photograph made by hand in the darkroom from Pennie Smith’s original negative on 16×20 inch paper, signed on the front under the image area by Pennie Smith.
On this original photograph you can see the West Ham graffiti that was removed from the actual Sandinista! LP cover artwork. Pennie Smith photographed the group behind Kings Cross/ St Pancras Station in London. The group had recently finished shooting a video for ‘The Call Up’, and Mick Jones is still wearing the helmet he wore for the filming.
