Our next exhibition, David Bowie 1977 Iggy Pop, showcases the work of legendary Japanese photographer Masayoshi Sukita, and focuses on his sessions with David Bowie and Iggy Pop in Japan in April 1977.

Every schoolboy knows that Sukita-san’s photograph of David Bowie from this April 1977 session was used on the front cover of his “Heroes” album, released in October 1977.  Not everyone knows that the photograph came from a hastily arranged shoot in a small studio in Tokyo, at which Sukita-san photographed both David Bowie and Iggy Pop, one after the other, at a small table.

In the upcoming exhibition, we dig deep into Sukita-san’s 1977 archive of David Bowie and Iggy Pop images, and include a number of pieces that have not been offered on the collectors market until now.

Hear No Evil

A special set available to purchase now

When we hosted Sukita-san’s first UK exhibition at our central London gallery in 2013, we included a set of three photographs at a significantly lower price to his standard pricing structure. Those pieces proved very popular, and in this new exhibition we are also including a set of three 8 x 10 inch signed limited edition photographs at a special price.

All three photographs show David Bowie sitting at the same table where the iconic “Heroes” cover image was created, in late April 1977. For reasons that will be immediately obvious, they are titled “See No Evil”, “Hear No Evil” and “Speak No Evil”. They work beautifully as a set.

Each photograph is made on 8 x 10 inch paper, with an image size of approximately 7 x 7 inches, and each one signed and numbered on the front under the image area by Masayoshi Sukita. All three photographs in each set have matched edition numbers, and this edition is limited to 100 sets worldwide.

We expect demand for these sets to be high, and we are making these available to order now.

Speak No Evil

Are they available individually ?

Yes – but only in larger sizes – from 16 x 20 inch paper up. If you want the 8 x 10 inch size, then they need to be purchased as a set.
