Unseen Bowie par Markus Klinko

Bowie07aJusqu’à la fin du mois de juillet, la galerie ArtCube expose une série de portraits inédits de David Bowie photographié par Markus Klinko. Après Los Angeles, Miami, Bâle, c’est à Paris que le portraitiste a souhaité présenter ces portraits du chanteur icône, prises à l’aube des années 2000.

Bowie07bDe leur rencontre artistique en 2001 autour de l’élaboration de l’album photo d’Iman “I’m Iman”, est née entre les deux hommes une indéfectible amitié qui durera près de 15 ans.

Bowie07cC’est autour de la gestation de l’album “Heathen” que David et Markus amorcent leur coopération: une couverture devenue mythique, des clichés noirs et blancs d’un Bowie aux faux airs dandy d’Humphrey Bogart, une silhouette longiligne se découpant sur un mur de Broadway, cigarette à la main, impact de l’hétérochromie de ses yeux revolver.

Bowie07dDepuis le décès de David Bowie le 10 janvier dernier, Markus a souhaité rendre hommage au compositeur, arrangeur et interprète.

Good Bye David Bowie

Good Bye David Bowie
Extra-terrestre londonien, rocker flamboyant exilé à New York, l’homme aux 1000 visages a été immortalisé par les plus grands. Hors cadre, hors genre, et surtout hors du temps, Bowie a marqué à jamais l’art de la transgression.

David Bowie | Style File Gallery

David Bowie is unarguably fashion’s king of self-invention. Mod teenager, hippy with dishevelled curls, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Thin White Duke – Bowie changed his style more dramatically than any other musician in history. His transformations brought about seismic cultural shifts, changing the definition of what it meant to be a popular rock star. For Bowie clothes were a way of projecting self-expression, a powerful tool in communicating individuality at its most extreme, glittering and creative.

On the last leg of the 1976 “Station to Station” European tour, Photographer Andrew Kent arrived at David’s Paris hotel to find the performer still in bed.
David slipped on a dressing gown and hopped back in bed for this unforgettable shot. Jimmy Osterberg (aka Iggy Pop) was also in the room.
“These were the best couple of hours I’ve ever had in photography. I was so fortunate to be there,” says the photographer.

“Bowie’s Back!” declared the headlines, playing off the distinctive angle of Andrew Kent’s famous shot to mark the performer’s return to London for the kickoff of Bowie’s ’76 European tour.
“Everybody identifies this shot with David,” Andrew says. Taken during a performance at Wembley Auditorium, it is one of the photographer’s favorites. It was featured on the cover of NME magazine.
