‘The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.’ David Bowie
Alec Byrne’s photo portrait of David Bowie, was taken at Beckenham Place Park in London during September 1969, shortly after the BBC started to play ‘Space Oddity.’ ‘Bowie was really interesting to work with. It took me a long time to get a shoot with him, and when I did he was just going out on his first tour for Humble Pie. We agreed to meet in the park and I assumed he’d come with the usual entourage, but when I met him in Beckenham Park it was just him and myself. We walked around for a bit to loosen him up, and we were both South London boys so I think we clicked. And it was a great afternoon that led to some of my favourite pictures of him.’ Alec Byrne
