This vivid half-bust portrait of David Bowie wearing a vintage suit is from a shoot for British GQ Magazine. ‘It was very collaborative, but it started with a very strong idea that he had. When you look at the Heathen cover, he's obviously a blind man with the [whited-out] eyes. It's a special effect. But even so, he wanted to get this very specific idea of the angle and the eyes being blinded like that. It was a Man Ray kind of inspiration. And the 1940s style suit, that was something that he wanted very specifically… Sometimes working with other artists that are beautiful and stunning and attractive, they don't necessarily have the same mindset. They are used to looking good, no matter how. A stylist or myself and the team will decide, this would look really great. Sometimes the publicist will say, don't go too crazy. But Bowie was very different in that sense.’ Markus Klinko and Laura Studarus for BBC Culture
