Mick Rock. The Rise of David Bowie. 1972–1973


Remembering Starman

Mick Rock’s legendary photos of the late artist

A unique tribute from David Bowie’s official photographer and creative partner, Mick Rock, compiled in 2015, with Bowie’s blessing.

In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. With it landed Bowie’s Stardust alter ego: a glitter-clad, mascara-eyed, sexually ambiguous persona who kicked down the boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, fact and fiction into one shifting and sparkling phenomenon of ’70s self-expression. Together, Ziggy the album and Ziggy the stage spectacular propelled the softly spoken Londoner into one of the world’s biggest stars.

A key passenger on this glam trip into the stratosphere was fellow Londoner and photographer Mick Rock. Rock bonded with Bowie artistically and personally, immersed himself in the singer’s inner circle, and, between 1972 and 1973, worked as the singer’s photographer and videographer.

This collection brings together spectacular stage shots, iconic photo shoots, as well as intimate backstage portraits. It celebrates Bowie’s fearless experimentation and reinvention, while offering privileged access to the many facets of his personality and fame. Through the aloof and approachable, the playful and serious, the candid and the contrived, the result is a passionate tribute to a brilliant and inspirational artist whose creative vision will never be forgotten.

Si eres fan de Bowie es un "must'

The early Years of Black Star

Wilhelm,22 novembre 2021
Ich bin aufgewachsen mit Ziggy Stardust. Er war mein erster Rock'n Roll Hero, mein erster Stern am musikalischen Himmel. Nirgendwo sonst, als in diesem grandiosen Buch, einem Denkmal für diesen einzigartigen Künstler, findet man eine derart geniale Dokumentation der ersten Glam-Rock-Ära von David Bowie, dem BLACK STAR!

Per tutti i fan del Duca Bianco e non

Un libro fotografico incredibile. Consigliato a tutti i fan di Bowie

A lovely book (for completionists)

Howard,27 ottobre 2021
I'm a big fan of David Bowie, so I thought this was a lovely book. However, for such a large book dedicated to a single year of his career, I found it somewhat repetitive. If you're someone who wants to own every single image, this is an excellent book to own. But for others, this may not be a must-have.

Foto meravigliose. Forse il periodo che preferisco di Bowie. Una vera opera d'arte. Un grande Bowie e un grande Mick.
