Florence Welch had a set of artificial lungs created for the cover of her smash album Lungs. And, as it was revealed just after Lungs was nominated for a Mercury Prize, Orlando Weeks from the British band The Maccabees was the one behind the actual creation of the faux-lungs that covered Welch's chest. It was Welch's inspired idea, along with art direction by Tabitha Denholm. But the magical photograph came to life only through the lens of photographer Tom Beard. It's an absolutely magical shot, capturing the natural wonder and underlying power of Florence's music. —Dale Eisinger
