Who Is That on Linkin Park’s ‘Meteora’ Album Cover?
Who is that on Linkin Park's Meteora album cover?
With the band now promising unreleased material (and who knows what else) surrounding the 20th anniversary of the album, Linkin Park's second studio effort from 2003, we decided to look back at the mysterious person in the photo on the front of the artwork.
Tellegen was there to help Linkin Park out with the artwork for Meteora. But what was first envisioned as the final album cover — a gigantic mural painted by the team — was ultimately replaced by the solitary shot of Tellegen working on the art. Pretty meta, right?
"We chose the image of Boris for the cover of the album because of that quiet power of it," Shinoda explains in The Art of Meteora, a short documentary film that accompanied the album.
