Jeff Ayeroff: “We had to shoot the Police for Synchronicity. At the time, Andy, Stewart and Sting were not speaking to one another, so I proposed we shoot them separately. You’ll notice on the album cover they are never pictured together. For Sting, we got permission to shoot inside the Museum of Natural History in New York. So we went in the middle of the night, and there was literally one guard in the whole place (like in the Ben Stiller movie Night at the Museum). We had free rein. We started taking pics, and Sting spontaneously ended up crawling inside the belly of this dinosaur skeleton. That’s why I just love this photo.”
