David Bowie: Seminal Images from Geoff MacCormack Released by Modern Rocks Gallery
MacCormack was David Bowie’s school friend, travel companion, band member and “holiday snapper” as he would refer to himself. Geoff toured with Bowie on the Aladdin Sane and Ziggy Stardust tours as a backing singer and percussionist, and as a backing singer, dancer and mime artist on the Diamond Dogs tour and as a backing singer on the Young Americans tour. During this incredible period in his life, Geoff had unique access to his friend and even got to hang out on the set of “The Man Who fell To Earth” as a completely inappropriate stand in for Bowie.
Many of the images in this collection were shot on the set of the movie “The Man Who Fell To Earth,” which was recently re-released. Other images were taken in the studio recording “Station to Station,” and some feature behind the scenes images from Bowie’s tour in Russia, mainly in Moscow and on the Trans Siberian Express, back in a time when western photographers were not allowed.
Bowie’s official website recently referred to these shots as the most beautiful photographs of David Bowie ever taken. They are available to fans and collectors as unique, signed limited editions, exclusive to Modern Rocks Gallery here in the US and printed to the highest quality in standard US sizes.
MacCormack’s collection is available online or in the Austin-based Modern Rocks Gallery at 916 Springdale Rd, Canopy Building 3 #103, Austin 78702.
