Baron Raimund von Stillfried: Samurai, (1881)

'The Manic Street Preachers' (no, I'm not a fan) have used this hand-tinted photograph for the cover of their latest album, and it was the huge backdrop through their set in Belfast today, one location of 'The Biggest Weekend' festival. I'd never seen it before or even heard of the photographer but it's a breath-taking image and I couldn't take my eyes of it. Hats off to their art director James Isaacs. Photography is totally amazing.
