Peter Ashworth is an English photographer, initially specialized in music photography between 1979 and 2000. His work came to prominence in the 1980s when he worked with artists and bands such as Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, The Cult and Tina Turner. The two-day photo session for Tina’s Private Dancer album took place in March 1984 at Bagley’s Warehouse in London, using a Hasselblad with a 150mm lens. The well-known cover picture with the cat from the European cover is only one of many shots from this session, including the picture with the industrial hoover from above.
