        24 x 24". Printed in the UK.

        Influenced by contemporary performance art and theatrical traditions, David Bowie was drawn to create dramatic, fictionalised stage personas.  His sixth studio album marked the birth of the character Aladdin Sane.  Bowie collaborated with photographer Brian Duffy and make-up artist Pierre Laroche on the album cover.  The result is one of the most recognisable images in popular culture.  This is a print of the contact sheet from that 1973 photo-shoot.

        The photographer Brian Duffy (1933-2010) captured the vibrancy of the swinging 60s in a series of stylish and iconic images. Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan he is recognized as one of the innovators of documentary fashion photography, a style which revolutionised fashion imagery. Together they dominated the London photographic scene, constantly pushing each other to new heights. During the late 50s,60s and 70s Duffy produced an extraordinary body of work including portraits, reportage, fashion and advertising.

        Please note that the retail price of this print will increase as the edition sells out.
