Auction site Paddle8 is having an auction of rare David Bowie photographs by the likes of Terry Pastor, Tom Kelly, Brian Duffy, Lynn Goldsmith, Ron Galella, Geoff MacCormack and Mick Rock who captured some of the most indelible images of the late icon. Rock says,
“You’ve got to remember how young we all were. Only Ian Hunter in Mott the Hoople had actually had a real job.”
Bowie hired Rock as his official photographer and videographer during his Ziggy Stardust tour in ’72-73 and granted him unprecedented access. Bowie once said of their collaboration,
“Mick sees me the way I see myself.”
Some of those photographs as well as others are in Paddle8’s buy now sale.
