ACC Art Books released David Bowie: Icon The Definitive Photographic Collection. The book includes 25 photographers from around the world that have captured one of the most iconic stars in history. Their images are accompanied by personal essays and reflections about working with David Bowie. From memories of the earliest days at the Arts Lab in Beckenham to what it was like touring the world with Bowie, each contributor shares their experiences of working with -‐ and knowing -‐ this most extraordinary figure.
With work by many of the most eminent names in photography, this book showcases a stunning portfolio of imagery, from portraits and album covers, performances and rehearsals, to rarely seen private moments and candid snapshots. The thoughts and reminiscences of the photographers, many sharing their memories for the first time, give us an insight into this artist.
