album covers

 The way bob Marley is posing in the photo shoe that he is a very laid back and free person. The writing is in gold and in the top left corner it says legend, this is to show his success and popularity. He is wearing a ring on his left finger again to show wealth and also a lot of powerful people wear big ring similar to him, so he is wearing the ring to also show power. The ring is also not straight on his finger to again show he is laid back. In the photo he is looking to the right, to show that he is not bothered about the picture or how he looks in it.

Red is a royal color and the background is in red to show that Elvis is a king (the King of rock and roll). He looks quite angry in the photo this is to intimidate the other singers at the time competing for fame against him. His hair is in a quiff because he is famous for it. His name is all in capitals to show how important and bold he was. 

The background is in white to make Jessie stand out and also to make it look like a photo shoot, as if she’s having her photo taken by other people. Her name is in gold to show that she is important and to show that she is wealthy enough to afford gold. She’s wearing a lot of black to show that she is very gothic and the fact that she is bisexual. She is posing for the camera to show that she is vein because she can be; because she’s so powerful no one can judge her. She’s got big nails on maybe to make people scared of her and show that she's like an animal.

There is cracked glass in the shape of a bullet hole to show that he has been shot, through the bullet hole there is a jesus cross highlighted. This is to show that he is religious and to show that when he got shot; God saved his life. He is topless in the photo to show that he has a good body and to show that he trains. He is wearing a watch and a Jesus cross to show people that he is rich and powerful. The background is in red to show royalty because red is a royal color. In the top left corner it says 'Get Rich Or Die Trying' this is to show that his inspiration was to get rich and he would die for his inspiration. He is also wearing gun holsters to show that he isn't afraid to shoot someone (he's fearless). 

Wiley is in a neglected park, maybe to show that he is lonely. Everything looks dark and like reality because he is trying to say that his raps are realistic and down to earth. In the top left corner it says 'play time is over' this could be because he is trying to say that he is growing up and becoming a man, he  doesn't have time to play. He is wearing a black tracksuit and everything seems to be quite dark and sad even though parks are for fun, so I think he is trying to show irony. That in parks you might see fights, drugs and violence and the world isn't always the way it seems.

Eminem is sitting on a kings chair with a crown on his knee and on the bottom right hand corner it says 'The King is Back' and in the background there is a sign saying 'eight mile' this is to show that he is the king of eight mile, he lived there and he is the king there everyone shows him respect and treats him like a king. Round the border of the album there is barbed wire as if he is in a cage in a zoo and the person taking the picture cant be in the cage with him.

In this album by owl city they are trying to show that here is a different world underneath our world, a world that we don't know about. they are also trying to show that nature is better than the world, that cities should be put underwater and that land and animals and nature should come first  but they don't come first.

In this album cover by justin timberlake it just has his initials to show that he is so popular he does not need him name on the album, by just putting his initials people already know who he is. he is wearing goggles to show that he sees life in a whole different way to other people and he is wearing a suit to show his class.

50 cent has got a watch and lots of chains on to show his wealth and power off to people, also to follow the stereotype that rappers wear 'bling'. He is sitting in a big leather chair like a boss or a leader on a film would sit. There are lots of CD's on the wall in the background this is to show that he has made lots of albums and become successful off them.

He is holding a wad of money to show his wealth and success. He is also wearing a big chain to show this. He has his hand on the leg of a woman in the background to make out he gets lots of girls. He is following the stereo type of a rapper; money, girls and bling.
