    The most significant collection of David Bowie images ever assembled.

    An unrivaled portfolio of images documenting the life and ever-changing personas of one the most influential musicians of the 20th century.
    Includes images from twenty five of the most important photographers who worked with the rock legend over the star’s five-decade career, beginning with Bowie’s self-titled debut album, David Bowie by David Bowie, released 1 June, 1967.
    A book as big as its subject: 356 pages, 245 black-and-white and color photographs, 11 ½ x 13 inches.
    With portraits and album covers, performances and rehearsals, rarely seen private moments, and candid snapshots.
    Features personal essays or commentary reflecting on the photographer’s experience of working with Bowie.
    Introduction by George Underwood, the man who, as a kid, permanently damaged Bowie’s eye in a brawl over a girl, and went on to become a musical collaborator and life-long friend.

    Bowie’s theatrical, chameleon-like performances were made of mystery, fantasy, and rebellion.

    Mick Rock

    “I experienced David Bowie above all as a piece of living artwork, constantly modulating and mutating like a series of startling reflections in a cracked mirror. He was fascinating: Ziggy Stardust was a new breed of rock ’n’ roll operative, a rogue hitman with his own agenda, a post-modern heartthrob with destiny on his mind, a dreamer of Dada with glitter in his soul. He was the Scarlet Pimpernel in fabulous drag. He was what the times needed and a whole lot more.”

    Masayoshi Sukita

    “Whatever was happening to David in his personal life, he never showed it in front of the camera. His strength and humility always shone through in images, that was the bottom line, and it’s something that I will always remember.

    And if I had to choose a highlight? Every time I shot David was a career highlight. He is, and always will be, my favourite subject.”

    Terry O’Niell

    “Bowie’s manager rang and asked if I was available to do some additional work with Bowie, this time in a studio environment. Everyone was quite happy with what I did at the Marquee and David needed stills for his new album they were just finishing off, called Diamond Dogs.”

    A tribute to one of the most influential rock musicians since the sixties.

    Steve Schapiro

    “Working with David Bowie always pushed me to unexpected and appreciated creative experiences. A shared love for Buster Keaton probably cemented our relationship. Bowie wanted to hear all the stories about the times I worked with his idol: Keaton

    Being a special photographer on The Man Who Fell To Earth produced many iconic images: magazines, books and album covers. However, the story I really want to tell is about the first photo shoot I did with David Bowie in 1974.”

    Denis O’Regan

    “I was unprepared for David’s warmth and humour, and the enthusiasm with which he invited me to capture his every move – onstage, offstage, backstage, travelling, out with friends, and just the two of us alone. David was generous with his time and gracious under pressure. In 1987, I toured the world again with David on his ‘Glass Spider’ tour. No photographer has ever spent more time with him; and I treasure those times.”

    Marcus Klinko

    “Towards the end of his life, Bowie put out a few music videos and I directed him in the 2013 video for the track ‘Valentine’s Day’. We talked about a new major photoshoot at that time, but very sadly, he passed away before we had a chance to make it happen.”
