The album’s back cover depicts a faceless “Floyd salesman”,in Thorgerson’s words “selling his soul” in the desert (shot in the Yuma Desert in California).The absence of wrists and ankles signifies his presence as an “empty suit”.
"I think it’s our best record.I will listen to that record for pleasure,and there aren’t many other Floyd records that I can say that about."
[Richard Wright about “Wish You Were Here”]
Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.
The beach was so nice today
