The vertical country of the second world. by Sergey Prokofyev
The term of classification of the world division into first, second and third appeared in the middle of the 20th century during the cold war. The countries of the first world were the democratic countries of the Northern Alliance. The countries of the second world were the countries of the Warsaw Agreement and the USSR, as well as the communist countries. The countries of the third world are the countries which failed to participate in the cold war directly, but still were the arena of rivalry. This classification was of political nature.

Storm Thorgerson (1944-2013)
Üstadın eserlerini ne zaman incelesem, zaman kavramım gidiyor, aklım şaşıyor. Pink Floyd’un “momentary lapse of reason” albüm kapağını sahile gerçekten 700 demir yatak yerleştirerek fotoğraflaması, günümüzde üretilen digital işlerin birçogunu anlamsız ve kalitesiz kılmaya yetiyor.
“we first met in our early teens. we would gather at sheep’s green, a spot by the river in cambridge and storm would always be there holding forth, making the most noise, bursting with ideas and enthusiasm. nothing has ever really changed.
he has been a constant force in my life, both at work and in private, a shoulder to cry on and a great friend.
the artworks that he created for pink floyd from 1968 to the present day have been an inseparable part of our work.
I will miss him.”
