BOWIE UNSEEN : PORTRAITS OF AN ARTIST

$25.00 Excl. tax

A collection of original and rare photographs from Bowie's debut album shoot, which were released for the first time as fine art prints in 2016. A glimpse at the origins of a late great pop-music icon, pre-fame, pre-Ziggy Stardust.

In 1967, David Bowie enlisted Dek Fearnley to help record an album. Reportedly learning by studying the Observer Book of Music, the two young musicians practiced, wrote and hung-out at the home of Fearnley's brother, Gerald.

Gerald Fearnley was a working photographer in 1967. "I was a still life photographer, working on my own, in a studio right off of Oxford Street. I don't remember how it happened, but I was enlisted to take photographs of David for the cover. I was probably the only person he knew with a studio and a camera."

Now - fifty years since the original photo session and release of David Bowie's debut album - the unseen photos of Gerald Fearnley are presented here for the first time. These whimsical, youthful images capture the artist as a young man only a few years before he'd transform himself into Ziggy Stardust and launch a career that would become one of the most successful and influential in the history of modern music.
