“I‘m under Japanese influence”
Taking advantage of the influx of Bowie fans headed to the V&A from March 23rd, London‘s SNAP gallery will be hosting an exhibition of breath-taking Bowie photographs by Masayoshi Sukita.
Here‘s a bit from the SNAP blurb:
From 23 March 2013 we will be hosting the inaugural David Bowie retrospective of work by Japanese master photographer Masayoshi Sukita. This is one of the most exciting exhibitions we have put on at the gallery, and we have been working very hard behind the scenes with Sukita-san to put this together in a relatively short time-frame.
The exhibition, which has David Bowie’s personal seal of approval, features images from Sukita-san’s 40+ years of collaboration with David Bowie, and combines previously unseen images alongside familiar classics, in a range of physical sizes, including some dramatic large format pieces.
Sukita-san’s archive is truly outstanding - one of the most important David Bowie archives, if not the most, anywhere in the world. Perhaps best know for his “Heroes” cover photograph (which, coincidentally, features on the cover on the new album, The Next Day)
Sukita-san’s relationship with Bowie started in 1972, and the exhibition will cover work from 1972 to 2002.
Masayoshi Sukita: Photographs of David Bowie 1972 to 2002 runs from 23rd March to 30th April 2013. Keep an eye on the SNAP Galleries page for updates.
