“We had a friend, a talking man”

 

As you may already know, Mick Rock’s photo exhibition - David Bowie by Mick Rock - is currently underway at VACANT in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan, boasting approximately 50 iconic Bowie images shot by Mick Rock.

 

Here’s a bit from Mick...

“I'm delighted to be returning to Tokyo for my first time in a decade. In 2007 I did a book and an exhibition (called Tamashii), with my friend Kanzaburo Nakamura, the great Kabuki Master. Unfortunately he died in 2012. I met and worked with him on several occasions and we had a wonderful relationship.

 

I also did a spectacular retrospective exhibition called 'Rock N Roll Eye' at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in 2003. But this is my first ever Bowie solo exhibition in Japan. Most of the photos have never been exhibited in Japan. And over 50% have never been exhibited anywhere in the world previously. I hope everyone will love these intimate and iconic images of my legendary friend, David. I can't wait to get back to Tokyo, one of my all-time favourite cities!!”

Mr Rock himself will be having a bit of a public natter regarding his work with David Bowie, in a talk that happens on Monday, March 13th.

 

Also, on Friday March 3rd, there will be a lecture by Yoichiro Yamazaki, editor-in-chief of the wonderful rockin’on magazine. The event is called Voice of Bowie and this promises to be a good one, as rockin’on magazine has flown the Bowie flag high since Ziggy first landed.

 

Tickets for both these events are on sale now, see below for links.

 

Official merchandise and vinyl will also be available at the venue, along with signed copies of Mick Rock’s photo book “The Rise of David Bowie, 1972-1973 (TASCHEN)”.
