Brian Duffy who is known as the man who shot the sixties,Was known for his technical capabilities to Fathom out complex issues & deliver the shot no matter what.

David Bowie who is well known as a trend setter in the music & fashion worlds what happens when the two men collaborate ,Well you get the image for Aladdin Sane which has been released with eyes closed & eyes shut This for me is an iconic image from the era which still stands tall in todays digital world ,The technique Duffy used was extremely expensive at the time & has proved to be a Bench mark by which music Photographers go by.

Duffy’s son goes through some of the background information between Duffy & Bowie’s collaborations,The Two men made an enormous impact in the music history and across multiple generations There after. They were both extraordinary artist’s, & leave a legacy behind for future generations to admire, I found the short video interesting I hope you do too.
