David Bowie: Unseen Photographs by Markus Klinko
Markowicz Fine Art is revealing never-before-seen images of the legendary David Bowie this month. Captured by celebrity and fashion photographer Markus Klinko, the exclusive collection of 14 Fujifilm prints were shot in 2001—and are just one of the many sessions over the course of his 15-year relationship with Bowie, notably the cover of his album “Heathen.”
Klinko met the late singer through his collaboration with Iman for the cover of her book, “I am Iman.” And while more of the photographer’s images of Bowie can be spotted in glossy magazines such as GQ and Interview, this public exhibition is a timely opportunity to see the iconic artist in a new light and through the instant Fujifilm gaze. “One of the highlights of my career has been having the privilege of working with David Bowie,” said Klinko. “I am honored to have this opportunity to unveil his remarkable photos and unique Polaroids for the first time ever.”
Where music, fashion and photography meet in the Miami Design District, Markowicz Fine Art Gallery will be hosting a private reception on Thursday, February 25 with the artist. The limited edition photographs are autographed by Klinko and will be available for sale exclusively at the event but the exhibition will remain on view through mid-March. Net proceeds benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, which funds the nation’s best and brightest scientific investigators whose research focuses on finding less toxic treatments for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers.
