Photographing David Bowie: How a Master Photographer Shot 3 of Bowie’s Most Famous Album Covers

We’re still in shock over the death today of legendary musician and artist David Bowie. Someone who knew Bowie more than most folks was renowned fashion photographer Brian Duffy who, between 1972 and 1980, worked with Bowie on five photo projects, including three of his most famous album covers.

In the below video from 2013, Brian Duffy’s son, Chris, discusses the making of these covers including the iconic shots on Aladdin Sane, Lodger, and Scary Monsters (& Super Creeps).

“I think David has always been very clever in harnessing other people’s energy and creativity,” Chris said, at the time, about his father’s collaborations with the now late, great musician.
