Masayoshi Sukita

Masayoshi Sukita is a Japanese master photographer best known for his David Bowie archive. Sukita met David Bowie for the first time in London in 1972. He secured a photo-shoot with Bowie in the summer of 1972, and so began a 40-plus-year collaboration between the two artists.

Sukita was there to welcome Bowie upon his arrival to Japan in 1973, and accompanied him on numerous subsequent visits. Over the years, between press conferences and photo shoots, Sukita and Bowie explored the cities, relaxed with friends, and attended Iggy Pop’s birthday party. In April 1977 Sukita took the iconic cover shoot for Bowie’s “Heroes” album. This is perhaps Sukita’s most famous photograph of David Bowie.

Sukita-san’s limited editions are available to purchase in a choice of sizes.

Mick Rock

Mick Rock is often referred to as “The Man who shot the Seventies”. He is the inimitable rock photographer who launched his career with a then-unknown David Bowie in 1972. That first photo shoot developed into a two year relationship as Bowie’s official photographer. During this time Mick documented the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust, and shot promotional films, album jackets, posters, artwork, videos such as ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘Space Oddity’ and many thousands of photographs.

Denis O’Regan

Denis’s photographs of David Bowie span nearly two decades, but those taken in 1983, when he accompanied Bowie for nine months on his most successful ever tour, are from the period when he and Bowie became firm friends. Denis was given unprecedented access, and his photographs capture not only Bowie’s unique stage performances but candid, unguarded offstage moments. Denis first officially photographed Bowie outside Olympic Studios in Barnes, as he arrived to record Diamond Dogs. However his first live pictures had been taken as a true amateur, at the Hammersmith Odeon, on the night before Bowie retired his Ziggy Stardust character. Less than ten years later Denis returned to the Hammersmith Odeon, this time as Bowie’s official photographer on his 1983 Serious Moonlight world tour.

Brian Duffy

Brian Duffy photographed David Bowie over five sessions between August 1972 and April 1980, and made the iconic Aladdin Sane album cover image. Over the course of these sessions, the pair became great friends. Duffy sadly passed away in 2010 but collectors can still purchase signed examples of his work, alongside unsigned estate-authorised pieces, all carefully curated by his son Chris.

Louis Sidoli

First produced in 2008, Louis Sidoli’s ‘Most Wanted” series of artworks, based on police mugshots of famous icons, went on to become a best selling international published print edition, owned by several thousand collectors worldwide. Bowie was arrested on March 21, 1976, after a performance in Rochester, New York. About half a pound of marijuana was confiscated by the police. Bowie was held with three others — including musician Iggy Pop, for three hours and then released on $2,000 bond. Bowie later pleaded not guilty and a grand jury decided to pass on the case.

Michael Putland

Michael Putland didn’t have a day off in the seventies. At least that’s how it seemed to him at the time. And looking back, there’s just no other way he could have assembled a photographic archive of such immense breadth and depth. His A to Z would wrap around a small village. Michael started photographing musicians in the late sixties. He really hit his stride in the seventies and by the mid-eighties he had captured pretty much everyone of significance in the music business over the course of a twenty year career.

Michael Putland passed away at the end of 2019. Until his estate is settled, we are temporarily suspending sales of Michael’s photographs. Please do get in touch if you would like to receive details of when work from the archive is available again.

Claude Gassian

Paris-based Claude Gassian has been shooting the legends of rock from the early seventies, and is one of France’s best known music photographers. Looking back on this particular Bowie concert in 1976, Claude recalls, “David Bowie’s show in Paris for the Station to Station tour was one of my favourite ever concerts, and will remain so. It was a great time for music and photography.”
