While David Bowie was on tour for the promotion of Diamond Dogs, he sat once again for Terry O'Neill, this time in Los Angeles. The assignment was for a magazine and Bowie styled himself.


As Terry recalls, he walked into the studio with the most vibrant yellow-mustard suit and his hair was multi-coloured; a combination of yellow, orange and red.

"I remember thinking how tired he looked knowing what we know now, he was living very fast in 1974, and you can see that in his eyes. And it was David who randomly picked-up the scissors".

Terry O'Neill came to prominence in the 1960s with the new generation of photographers including David Bailey and Brian Duffy who rejected the static formality of the posed photographs of the 1950s and went instead for spontaneity and unusual settings. Terry O'Neill worked with David Bowie a number of times creating some of the most striking images of him.



The estate prints were introduced following the photographer’s passing in 2019 to complete unfinished editions. They have a digitally printed signature and edition number on the bottom front border, embossed over the signature, and estate-stamped and authenticated on the reverse.
