This full body portrait shot of David Bowie walking down the stairs and wearing a vintage suit is from a shoot for British GQ Magazine. ‘The classicism represents the breaking from it. A classic world where a man believes in rules of religion and Christianity. Choosing a more classic departure point, it could be illustrated with the blind eyes. Ripping the pages out, walking away with a child in the snow, the leather coat and boots. It didn’t tell me “let’s choose Hollywood,” that’s my interpretation. When he explained the concept to me, when he started playing the music at his recording studio on Broadway, this bittersweet Heathen album, he was elaborating on the concept, showing me the Man Ray references, the solarised effects and that’s when it all came together. It was the loss of belief he emphasised.’ Markus Klinko for Vanity Fair
