Signed Duffy Bowie Five Sessions

About this piece: Duffy, the photographer, shot five sessions with David Bowie in 1972, with the most iconic being the  Aladdin Sane album cover.  This revolutionary shot became the defining look of Bowie’s long career and has been referred to as the _Mona Lisa_ of pop. The photographer and the rock star collaborated on four other projects: _Ziggy Stardust_, _The Man Who Fell to Earth_, _Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)_ and _Lodger_. They worked together during the pivotal years of Bowie’s career; when the king of glam was assuming and discarding extraordinary personas, Duffy was capturing them all.

Written by David Bowie’s biographer, Kevin Cann, Duffy Bowie Five Sessions features anecdotes and stories from those attending the shoots – including Tony Defries (Bowie’s manager at the time of Ziggy Stardust); Celia Philo (designer) & Philip Castle (airbrush artist) from the famous _Aladdin Sane_ shoot; Francis Newman (Duffy’s studio manager); May Routh (costume designer) from _The Man Who Fell to Earth;_ Geoff MacCormack (musician and Bowie’s childhood friend); Derek Boshier (art director of _Lodger_); Natasha Kornilof costume designer for _Scary Monsters;_ Edward Bell (artist); Steve Strange (musician) and Duffy’s son, Chris, who also worked on the _Scary Monsters_ session. Included are many unseen images and behind-the-scenes photographs.

“It wasn’t until we saw the contact sheets the next day I remember thinking, God this is spectacular. You just knew you had cracked it, boy, did you know it.” Celia Philo
