Synopsis

"AS ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHER, ADVENTUROUS FAN AND INSIDER EYE-WITNESS, KEVIN CUMMINS HAS ALWAYS BEEN WHERE THE CULTURAL ACTION IS. MIXING MEMORY & DESIRE WILL MAKE YOU SEE DAVID BOWIE IN A SURPRISING AND STIMULATING NEW WAY." -PAUL MORLEY "DAVID BOWIE WAS ON A CREATIVE JOURNEY THROUGH MUSIC, FASHION AND ART. A JOURNEY UNPARALLELED IN POPULAR CULTURE. WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS FOR US THAT KEVIN CUMMINS WAS THERE TO CAPTURE THIS JOURNEY. HIS WONDERFUL BOOK SHOWS US EXACTLY WHY BOWIE WAS SO UNIQUE." -NOEL GALLAGHER "KEVIN BRILLIANTLY CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE GREAT MAN IN THESE REMARKABLE PHOTOGRAPHS. CUMMINS IS SO ADEPT AT BREAKING DOWN THE BARRIER OF THE CAMERA, YOU SENSE BOWIE IS COMPLETELY AT EASE WHEN THEY WORKED TOGETHER" -GOLDIE 'Whether you know him as Ziggy Stardust, Major Tom, or just David Jones, there is a David Bowie for everyone. Through Cummins's photos, each of these iconic personas is brought before our eyes.' DAILY MAIL The career of celebrated photographer Kevin Cummins began on 29th June 1973 when, as a nineteen-year-old photography student, he photographed David Bowie. That image is now in the renowned photography collection of the V&A Museum and marked the beginning of Kevin Cummins' four-decade-long visual chronicle of David Bowie's remarkable career. David Bowie: Mixing Memory & Desire includes some of the best portraits of Bowie ever taken, the majority of which have never been published until now. From those legendary Bowie gigs in the early 1970s, through to a poignant image taken outside his apartment in New York in 2016, Cummins has captured the many faces of Bowie and created a book that is essential for Bowie fans everywhere.
