‘This is not just another Bowie book. This, it’s fair to say, is THE Bowie book … essential for any fan.’

  1. Sunday Telegraph

Iconic photographer Terry O’Neill’s creative partnership with David Bowie spanned many years and this book is the breathtaking result of that incredible collaboration. Featuring more than 500 images, including many rare and previously unpublished photographs, this is the ultimate portrait of an inspiring, challenging and ever-changing artist.


O’Neill is one of the world’s most collected photographers, and one of the most important of his generation, with work hanging in permanent collections in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. His portraits include sitters such as The Beatles, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery and Amy Winehouse but his close working relationship with Bowie allowed him to gain a greater insight to the singer and his work. This collection includes images from the last Ziggy Stardust performance, recording sessions for Young Americans and the renowned studio portraits for Diamond Dogs, as well as live shows, film shoots, backstage moments and other intimate portraits and occasions that capture Bowie as no one else did.

‘Over a 20-year period, O’Neill captured Bowie’s shapeshifting artistry better than just about anybody else.’
