Photographer Roger Prigent passed away at the age of 89 after suffering a stroke that left him in a coma. The name may not ring a bell, but his work will. The oh-so-cool and iconic cover of Alice Cooper‘s ‘Love It to Death’ is but one line on his resume.

Starting in the ’50s, Prigent cultivated a nearly 30-year run as a fashion photographer for the likes of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, McCall’s and The Ladies’ Home Journal and TV Guide, where his work appeared regularly on the cover. He also developed a solid reputation amongst music stars, working with everyone from Alice Cooper to Barbra Streisand.

Next: A&M Records President Gil Friesen
