        Aladdin Sane - Eyes Open. V&A Tour Edition

        Brian Duffy session photograph from the Aladdin Sane photo-shoot, 1973
        Created for the V&A David Bowie is Tour by the Duffy Archive, 2013
        Photo Duffy © Duffy Archive & The David Bowie Archive

        This commemorative edition celebrates the international tour of the V&A exhibition 'David Bowie is' and marks the 40th anniversary of the release of David Bowie's Aladdin Sane album. This edition will be available exclusively through the exhibition tour venues and the V&A website.

        The V&A and Duffy Archive are delighted to present this print of the stricking 'eyes open' image from the session photographs for Aladdin Sane.

        This image remained unseen and unpublished until 2011, in 2013 it was selected as the lead image for the V&A exhibition. The arresting image shows the difference in Bowie's eye colour, the result of a childhood fight.

        Between 1972 and 1979 Brian Duffy shot five photographic sessions with David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Thin White Duke, Lodger and Scary Monsters. The most famous was their collaboration on the Aladdin Sane album cover, one of the most recognisable and influential images in popular culture.

        Single mounted print. Mount size 32 x 32 cm / 12.5 x 12.5 in. Single print 19 x 19 cm / 7.5 x 7.5 in.

        Printed on Fuji Baryte paper with embossed Duffy Archive stamp.
