David Bowie: la nuova mostra


Dopo il successo della fantastica mostra “David Bowie Is” (prorogata fino all’11 agosto), un’altra retrospettiva sta per essere inaugurata sempre a Londra. La mostra consiste nelle inedite foto scattate da Richard Young, fotografo e intimo amico di David Bowie. Dal 12 luglio al 25 ottobre alla Richard Young Gallery in Holland Street (Kensington) si potrà assistere ad un altro inimitabile spettacolo d’archivio. L’artista spiega l’incontro con Bowie:

“In 1964 when I was sixteen, I used to hang out in the Bataclan Club in Princes Street near Oxford Circus it was a very cool place to hang out in the day. It was there I met a guy called Geoff, we became friends through our love of music and French girls. Very often on Sunday afternoons a group of us would make our way to Geoff’s place in South London where we would listen to soul music till the early hours. Occasionally a guy called David Jones would come over and hang out. Little was I to know who David would become! Sadly as it was overforty years ago and we were all in a psychedelic haze, I don’t remember much else of what went on. I recently chatted with David about the old days and he couldn’t remember much either! Geoff MacCormack went on to become David’s back up singer and it wasn’t until 1974 that I became a photographer.”
