The defining images of Duffy and Bowie’s creative relationship have become synonymous with the legacy of both artists. The Photography artwork was taken by Duffy during the first of five sessions with David Bowie as his iconic character Ziggy Stardust. Wearing a costume he had designed with fashion designer Freddie Burretti and posing with a red teardrop 12-string guitar which was a borrowed prop. A few weeks earlier, David had chosen this outfit for his iconic 1972 appearance on Top of The Pops with The Spiders From Mars. A performance which made David Bowie a household name, influencing a generation.

Duffy studied dress design at St. Martins School of Art and was taught how to make and construct a garment. He understood the drape and fall of fabric and how the structure worked. Using this knowledge he always ensured the garment was shown on the model at it's very best. Duffy was hired for his fashion photography by all the top fashion magazines of the period.
