David Bowie, Lodger Original Polaroid, 1979

By Brian Duffy
About the image
David Bowie and Duffy worked out a whole scene for the Lodger cover and it required that Duffy be perched above the set, shooting down so as to capture the proper effect.  Duffy built a contraption to lay upon and mount his camera to, and took a test shot, as is typical, with a polaroid to see instantly how the effect was to come across on film.  This is a reproduction of that original polaroid from the shoot.

Collector's Note:

This image is available as a SIGNED limited edition. Please Note: Only 8 from the edition of 15 in the 40" x 40" size were printed and signed by Duffy. 

In 2009-2010 Duffy and his son Chris produced these editions and Duffy signed them shortly before his death.

The front of each SIGNED photograph bears the signature on the lower right and the official Duffy Archive seal embossed on the lower left. All prints are signed and authenticated on the rear by Chris Duffy with full print details including a unique reference number. Each print is also issued a certificate of authenticity.
