A-ha photographed by Phil Nicholls
Photoshoot: 17 August 1988
Location: Kensington, London, UK.
"My first shoot with A-ha sees the three band members looking pretty cool on a hot summer day in London".
A-ha wowed British audiences with chart hits, Take On Me, The Sun Always Shines On TV, and The Living Daylights (theme tune to the Bond movie of the same name). Arguably, in the UK, A-ha might be best remembered for their ground-breaking video for Take On Me, which used a pencil-sketch animation and live action combination called rotoscoping, with band members morphing from live characters into pencil drawings and back again.
