Farewell David Bowie: A tribute to a Starman

12 January 2016

The RPS Journal

In our August 2014 edition of the Journal we featured this striking image of David Bowie by Lord Snowden which had been donated to the National Portrait Gallery in London. NPG have 16 Bowie portraits listed in their collections including some great photography. 

As the world mourns a superb talent, we thought we’d share a few links of interest spanning the artist's career:

  • Mashable have collated 25 era-defining photos of David Bowie through the decades.
  • As a man of such incredible influence there are countless books that document his life. We thought this book might be worth a look: David Bowie - A Life in Pictures
  • Iman, David Bowie’s wife of almost 24 years, has been posting some of her favourite images of the star on Instagram.
  • Showing the singer in feisty form, these images are most likely the last taken of him.
  • Front covers around the world have also been paying tribute.
  • Having been such a trailblazing cultural force, Bowie will forever be remembered as one of musical history's giants.
