This striking shot of David Bowie holding a cross is from a shoot for British GQ Magazine. ‘It was a very small set. For a typical mainstream A-list celebrity shoot, you can have 30 or 40 people on set. But we had four or five. The studio was a 1970s Soho loft that I propped out and added post-production effects to to make it look turn of the century or 1940s. There is a Humphrey Bogart mood in a lot of these photos. It has that Old Hollywood, theatrical approach that Bowie was deliberate about. It was almost like watching him get ready for a play. Towards the end of his life, he did a few theatrical music videos, but in terms of a still photo shoot for an album cover, this was the last big one. I think it’s a celebration of Bowie.’ Markus Klinko for Vanity Fair London
