Rare and Iconic David Bowie
January 08, 2022 –10am to 5pm
Rarely seen David Bowie photos by celebrity photographer Markus Klinko at Emillions Art.
Emillions Art founder and global art consultant Marlissa Gardner opens a one-of-a-kind, curated exhibition of iconic and haunting images of David Bowie by internationally renowned fashion/celebrity photographer Markus Klinko to commemorate what would have been the rock legend’s 75th birthday on Saturday, January 8th. The Bowie art exhibition is open to the public at the Emillions Art showroom at 837 5th Avenue South, Suite 202 in Naples, Fla., Jan. 8 – Jan. 18, 2022, from 10 am until 5 pm, Tuesdays through Saturday.
The unveiled photos have rarely been shared publicly before. Several images were originally captured for the artist’s 2002 Heathen album and the cover of GQ’s “Men of the Year” issue. The series of signed and numbered limited edition prints ranges from surreal and highly stylized characters – such as Bowie carrying a baby or holding a wolf on a lead – to pared-back portraits. All the images were inspired by the songs on the album and co-created with Bowie.
“The transformation of Bowie in the photographs Marcus shoots is staggering. His styling and use of lighting creates an aura that tells you a great deal about the subject. The pictures pull you in and you just can’t stop looking at them,” promises Ms. Gardner.
Klinko was originally asked to photograph Bowie for the Heathen album artwork after he had photographed Bowie’s wife Iman for the cover of her book, I am Iman. From there, he went on to create most iconic album covers including Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love and Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi. He has photographed Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Will Smith, Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian, and Naomi Campbell. Klinko’s artwork is available now at Emillions Art.
