Borrowdale Johnny: Artwork
Borrowdale Johnny album artwork was created by Furness photographer Steve Wharton: An intruging fusion of photographs of the band in period costume and 'backdrop' paintings by Mike Willoughby.
The lead role of Borrowdale Johnny is played by Bowness poet and another great friend of the band Jimmy Eccles.
Steve has wonderfully encapsualted the themes and theatrical landscape inherant in the music.
We always love working with Steve; his images always fuse beautifully with our ideas, often influencing our own approach to the music!
This page gives us all the oppotunity to look at those special main images in closer detail!
