When David Bowie passed away on 10 January 2016, the world lost an icon. And yet, his legacy lives on. From his humble origins as a teen musician in the 1960s up until the very end, David Bowie's music, lyrics and provocative performances inspired not only his generation, but every generation that followed. While his sound and style underwent several alterations throughout his career, two facts never changed. He was an innovator, and photographers adored him. Bowie Icons gathers the greatest shots of this star into a single volume. The result: the single most important anthology of David Bowie images that has ever been compiled. Follow the visual evolution of Bowie over the years, through the lenses of iconic photographers. Featured photographers include: Gerald Fearnley, Justin de Villeneuve, Terry O'Neill, Masayoshi Sukita, Norman Parkinson, Kevin Cummins, Geoff McCormack, Alec Byrne, Ray Stevenson, Chalkie Davies, Brian Aris, Tony McGee and Greg Brennan.

Reviews for David Bowie: Icon: The Definitive Photographic Collection

A must-have for all Bowie fans. -- Departures International; You couldn't take a bad picture of him, [photographer Mick] Rock tells The Daily Beast. I defy you to look through the book and find a picture you could call 'bad.' There aren't any. He just had an awareness. It was evident early on-he understood the power of the picture. -- The Daily Beast; The most beautiful photographs of the star in a single and beautiful book... a rich and splendid compilation... -- Beware Magazine; ... impressive ... a splendid collection. -- Velvet Goldmine; Arguably the first musical artist to constantly reinvent himself through revising his image, Bowie proved to be as much a visual icon of the 70s, 80s and 90s as he was a musical innovator. Now, all that glam has been captured in a spectacular book. -- Chris Jenkins, Arts & Collections magazine; Audacious, wide-ranging, and frankly gorgeous. -- Flood Magazine; David Bowie's image was as much a part of his art as was his music. In a luxurious new book, photographers including Terry O'Neill capture images of the rock icon. -- Chris Jenkins, Arts & Collections;
