I have been a fan of Led Zeppelin for many years and while researching location for my trip to New York in November 2015 I read about this.
The spot where the original album cover had been shot in 1975 still existed in the East Village. I wanted to try and recapture 40 years later and here is the result.
This image received an honourable mention in the International Photographer of the Year in 2015 awards.
And here is the original 1975 album cover.
