The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography, Moscow, presents “David Bowie. The Man Who Fell to Earth“ by photographer Steve Schapiro. From 11 January until 31 March, 2019.
The exhibition “David Bowie. The Man Who Fell to Earth“ unites two prominent names of the 20th century – the photographer Steve Schapiro and the musician and rock icon David Bowie. This exhibition shows never-before-published photos from the 1970s, including the performance with Cher on the Cher Show, and shots from the film set of the popular movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. After that role, Bowie was type cast as an odd creature, a stranger and a temporary visitor of our planet.
The essential part of the exhibition features Bowie’s portraits from the famous 12-hour private photo session in Los Angeles in 1974. That collaboration between Schapiro and Bowie provided images for magazine covers such as People and Rolling Stone, and album covers for “Station to Station”, “Low” and a compilation album “Nothing Has Changed”.
