Throwback Thursday


Taken by Brian Duffy during the fourth of the five sessions with David Bowie in 1979 for his thirteenth studio album and final album of his "Berlin Trilogy."  The final cover art was a collaboration between Duffy/Bowie and Derek Boshier tying the project together graphically.  David's bandaged hand was actually the result of a coffee burn, though perfectly suited the dramatic imagery.  This test Polaroid was taken to view the "Lodger" scene before taking the high resolution Kodachrome version.  After the session David decided to use an enlarged version of a test Polaroid for the album cover.

This is beautiful, thank you.
I came here just to say that your work is amazing - and last night, watching you in the White Lodge on episode 14, I was moved to tears. Thanks for what you do.
