Athletes Recreate Iconic Album Covers For ESPN. All The Images, Side by Side Comparisons and Behind The Scenes Shots.




ESPN Magazine's Music Issue has a fabulous photo editorial that I simply had to share with you (along with some 'behind the scenes' shots). Photographed by Mattias Clamer, 14 athletes, all with a good sense of humor, let themselves be transformed to emulate musicians and recreate iconic album covers from the past few decades.

Below are the shots for ESPN, the original album covers, side by side comparisons and images from the set.
