Award-winning photographer Markus Klinko is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his iconic collaboration with David Bowie with a series of art gallery exhibitions, opening in Munich, Toronto, Vienna, London and Dubai.

For the occasion, Markus will also release two previously unseen works of Bowie, in both color and black & white limited editions in various sizes. Markus met Bowie just days before 9/11, at his New York studio, where Bowie attended an editing session to help select images for his wife Iman. The legendary super model had hired Klinko to create the cover for her book I Am Iman. A few minutes into the session, Bowie turned to Markus, and offered him to shoot the cover art of his upcoming album, Heathen.

‘Klinko, who has shot a range of celebrities including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Kanye West, took hundreds of photos of Bowie for his 2002 album, Heathen. It was an extensive eight-hour shoot that saw Bowie alongside a pack of wolves, cradling a baby and posing as a blind man. They show a part of Bowie that was inspired by Man Ray, but also one who subverted the classic symbolism of Old Hollywood film noir to reflect ideas on loss.’ Vanity Fair London
