    Michael Cooper (1941-1973) was a prominent British photographer, who is best remembered for his photos of rock musicians from the 1960's and early 1970's. His most famous work would have to be the cover artwork for The Beatles' landmark album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) and the Rolling Stones album, Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967). Cooper committed suicide in 1973, but his legacy and art live on.
