Exclusive Never Seen Before Photographs of David Bowie
Exclusive never-before-seen photographs of David Bowie
NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Award winning photographer MARKUS KLINKO celebrates the 20th anniversary of his iconic collaboration with David Bowie with a series of art gallery exhibitions, inaugurated in Munich, Toronto, Vienna, London and Dubai.
For the occasion, Markus will also be releasing two previously unseen works by Bowie, in color and black and white limited editions in different formats.
Markus met Bowie a few days before 9/11, at his New York studio, where Bowie attended an editing session to help select footage for his wife Iman. The legendary supermodel hired Klinko to design the cover for her book I AM IMAN. A few minutes after the start of the session, Bowie turned to Markus and offered to make the cover art for his next album, HEATHEN.
The tragic events of September 11 delayed the scheduling of the filming of HEATHEN, but David stuck to his word and filming took place at Klinko’s studio on October 10, 2001.
HEATHEN is widely regarded as one of the most successful albums of Bowie’s career.
While the photographs on the album quickly caught the attention of artists such as Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga, these works also helped launch Markus’ illustrious artistic career.
Markus de Bowie’s photographs are now represented by dozens of leading art galleries around the world and are increasingly in demand by fans and collectors.
The exhibition in Toronto, Canada, will open on October 30, 2021 at the LISS Gallery located at 112 Cumberland Street Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The exhibition in Munich, in exclusive partnership with FUJIFILM, will be held on October 14 at the Stephen Hoffman Gallery located at Prannerstraße 5, 80333 München, Germany, as well as in the integrated art gallery space of the Hotel Bayerischer Hof . The OstLicht Gallery in Vienna, also in an exclusive partnership with FUJIFILM, will open the exhibition on January 12, 2022.
As one of the first to embrace digital post-production, Klinko pioneered a style that has largely influenced current trends in fashion and celebrity photography. Klinko credits his use of the FUJIFILM GX680III, a 6x8cm medium format system, in conjunction with FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F for the vibrant palette and exceptionally high resolution of his work. In 2001, Klinko also began filming with the FUJIFILM FinePix S1 Pro, the first predecessor of the current line of the FUJIFILM X series and the GFX system. New images, taken in 2019 of singer Billie Eilish with the FUJIFILM GFX Medium Format Mirrorless System, featuring re-emerging 2000s signature clips, connect her works of the past and present. All of Klinko’s works that will be featured in upcoming exhibitions have been created with FUJIFILM cameras and / or film products.
We would love for you to share the NEVER BEFORE SEEN DAVID BOWIE images with your audience. For high resolution jpegs, please contact us. Markus Klinko is also available for comment.
