David Bowie

Catalogue No: DB012DUFFY Artist(s): David Bowie Location: London, UK Date: 1980 Era: The 1980's Edition: Limited Edition 40 Print type: Fine Art Print Paper type: Permanjet Titanium Silver Paper

Special limited edition print compiled to celebrate the 40th Anniversary launch of the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album release

This new print has been reconfigured by Chris Duffy with a reference to the three images that were used for the Ashes to Ashes 7” singles. David Bowie originally drew on the exterior stamps of Duffy’s images and Chris has used a combination of his father’s images along with his own images which were taken for the accompanying press and public relations campaign. Duffy’s ghosted signature is embossed on the front of the print along with Chris’s own signature.

This session was the fifth session that Duffy shot with David Bowie, Duffy had given up stills photography but David persuaded Duffy to do one final album cover with him. As Duffy had closed his own studio the shoot was taken in Chris Duffy’s studio in Little Russell Street, London (later to become the Cartoon Museum). Chris assisted his father and shot the images for the PR campaign. The central image was used in the 7” singles released from the album and Chris has remastered the ’stamps’ around the edges. Originally Bowie had used a marker pen on the ‘stamps’ creating graffiti imagery. Bowie had requested costume designer Natasha Korniloff to make him ’the most beautiful clown in the circus’ and this Pierrot costume - referencing his work with mime artist Lindsay Kemp - was exhibited as part of the David Bowie is exhibition. Richard Sharah was the make up artist introduced to Bowie by Steve Strange of the Blitz Club. Bowie describes this album as ‘wrapping up the 70’s’.

This print is produced on Permajet Titanium silver paper, with a delicate metallic sheen.
