Released in September 1977, "The Stranger," Billy Joel's fifth studio album and first to hit the Top 10, catapulted the artist into pop music superstardom while bringing home two Grammys: Record of the Year and Song of the Year (for "Just The Way You Are").
Photographer Jim Haughton's iconic cover portrait of Billy is as psychologically and emotionally complex as the songs; both, unforgettably rich with symbolism and implication. "We all have a face that we hide away forever and we take them out and show ourselves when everyone has gone," sings Billy on the album's title track.
Here, like frames from a film, are 12 sequential images from "The Stranger" cover shoot, many of them formerly unseen, each offering a different perspective on the mysteries of "The Stranger." The red mark which designates the actual chosen cover.
