Masayoshi Sukita is a Japanese photographer who took the photo for David Bowie’s 1977 album ‘Heroes’. There were several photos that were considered for the album. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Masayoshi Sukita first met David Bowie in 1972. Sukita’s first photos of David Bowie were taken in the Rainbow Theatre in London. Since then, they have collaborated in many projects. To this day, Sukita still remains one of Bowie’s favourite photographers. Sukita captured Bowie in action during the musician’s first visit to Japan in 1973 and his vacation in Kyoto in 1979.
Probably one of the most popular collaborations between the two is for Bowie’s 1977 album entitled Heroes. The photo above is the final album cover that they used. During the shoot, Bowie provided different expressions that Sukita captured on film. The outtakes for the photo session shows Bowie in a different light compared to the one that they used for the cover.
Here are some outtakes from the Heroes album shoot:
Sukita and Bowie have been friends for 40 years and the photographer has literally thousands of photos of Bowie – most of which are previously unseen by the public. The photos can be seen in a limited publication entitled Speed of Light. Only 2,000 copies will be produced and these will be signed by both Sukita and Bowie. You can read more about the publication on the publisher's website.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
