Just Can't Get Enough: The Photography of Robert Alford

The Police, 1983

Robert Alford

The photo Alford took of the Police in 1983 came about after he and Andy Summers spent the day at Classic Camera, a shop on the East Side of Detroit. Summers bought an Italian-made camera from the 1960s shaped like a banana. At the shoot with the entire band later in the day, Summers left the camera around his neck for the photograph.
