This portrait by photographer Brian Duffy has become one of the most celebrated rock 'n' roll images of all time; a variant pose from the one used on the cover of Aladdin Sane, Bowie's 1973 album and his first UK No 1. The photo shoot took place at Duffy's Primrose Hill studio and it was the result of a collaborative process between Bowie and Duffy, assisted by stylist Celia Philo and make-up artist Pierre La Roche.
