Description

Images are accompanied by personal essays and reflections about working with Bowie, from memories of the earliest days at the Arts Lab in Beckenham to detailed accounts of life on tour. The natural Santa Fe lighting gives this shot of David a wonderful glow, while the contents of the window display, plus the neon sign, lend further content. The book presents approximately 200 photographs and items of memorabilia including tour programmes, tickets and letters from the author's personal archives, nearly all of which are being published for the first time. Geoff commented: “I am very happy to be working with the team at ACC, who will not only publish my words but also my photos with great care.

With work spanning 25 of the most eminent names in photography, this book showcases a stunning portfolio of imagery and gives us an insight into the artist unlike any other.

Bowie wearing only his underwear while playing to adoring fans in Tokyo, meeting Russian villagers after stepping off the Trans-Siberian Railway or the filming The Man Who Fell to Earth in New Mexico… McCormack's years with Bowie seem to have been "the freakiest show" - but it's clear that he had the time of his life. Original red imitation morocco backed, padded buckram boards, titles in gilt to spine and in brown to silk label to front cover, illustrated endpapers, edges gilt.ACC Art Books has announced a new memoir by one of David Bowie’s closest friend of over 60 years, Geoff MacCormack. Schooldays behind them, David Jones metamorphosed into David Bowie while Geoff worked at a string of clothes boutiques and even as a runner and occasional singer for the BBC Radio One DJ Emperor Rosko. Explore how photography, as an art and as a social phenomenon, continue to define our experience of the world. When David asked Geoff to join his band as a backing singer and percussionist, he was already well on the way to superstardom. The book contains nearly 150 photos taken by MacCormack throughout the years, some never seen before: from touring the Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane shows and sailing to New York on a world tour, to Bowie’s first major film The Man Who Fell to Earth and the recording of Station to Station and his Thin White Duke persona.
