Photography: Bowie Proof Sheets
Is there anyone in the world more photogenic than David Bowie? Many of his album covers (always a self portrait) have become iconic. Everyone knows the lightning bolt make up of Alladin Sane and the weird black and white ‘salute’ of Heroes. His many personas were equally as famous – the half-man-half-dog of Diamond Dogs, The Thin White Duke of Station to Station, Scary Monsters… victorian clown or the young long haired singer/songwriter of Hunky Dory. Even though he’s been photographed 1000’s of times it’s interesting to see the alternate shots – what might have been, from these famous LPs.
