BOWIE BY DUFFY

9th-13th January, Ebow Gallery, Doors: 11am-5pm & 11am-8pm (Thursday only), Adm: Free

Brian Duffy had an eight-year working relationship with Bowie and shot five key sessions over this period providing the creative concept as well as the photographic image for three album covers, including the 1973 Aladdin Sane (often nicknamed ‘the Mona Lisa of pop and Bowie’s - and arguably Rock n Roll’s - most famous image), 1979’s Lodger and 1980s Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).

The story of his life and work is documented in a BBC documentary titled The Man Who Shot the 60’s and in 2013 Duffy was included in the Professional Photographer list of the 100 most influential photographers of all time. Duffy’s input had a significant influence on the creation of Bowie’s chameleon-like public image and we are proud and honoured to have this amazing body of work as part of the Festival.
