Photography is indispensable to the success story of the record format: From Grace Jones to David Bowie or the Rolling Stones, photography has given many musicians and bands an unmistakable visual identity and transformed them into icons. Covers such as Abbey Road by The Beatles have achieved cult status, like the musicians and their albums. Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Irving Penn and Juergen Teller are just some of the best-known photographers commissioned by the record labels. With over 500 record covers, Total Records shows the innovative and artistic interaction between vinyl and photography, taking us on a journey through a cultural and media history of the twentieth century.

An exhibition by the Rencontres d'Arles, curated by Antoine de Beaupré, Serge Vincendet, and Sam Stourdzé.
