Steve Schapiro: DAVID BOWIE. THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH
January 11 – March 31, 2019

“This exhibition shows never-before-published photos from the 1970s, including the performance with Cher on the Cher Show, and shots from the film set of the popular movie The Man Who Fell to Earth. After that role, Bowie entrenched the character of an odd creature, a stranger and a temporary visitor of our planet.

The essential part of the exhibition features Bowie’s portraits from the famous 12-hour private photo session in Los Angeles in 1974. That collaboration between Schapiro and Bowie provided images for magazine covers such as People and Rolling Stone, and album covers for Station to Station, Low and a compilation album Nothing Has Changed. It was the first meeting of the two artists.”
