Markowicz Fine Art Gallery and celebrity photographer and director Markus Klinko collaborated on an exhibit that pays tribute to late pop culture icon David Bowie.
The exhibit debuted on February 25th and features 14 never before seen photographs of Bowie, who passed away earlier this year. The photographs were meant to represent Bowie’s “strength and wild side” and are symbolic of the different phases throughout Bowie’s lifetime.
Klinko’s cover photo for Bowie’s 2002 album, Heathen, is also on display.
“Before creating the album cover Bowie invited me to the recording studio to listen to the album. The album was going to be released a year after 9/11 and Bowie’s idea for the album cover was for it to convey a somber feeling. That’s why he has that mask over his eyes,” said Klinko.
The exhibit will travel nationwide, but Bowie’s creative spirit will live on in Miami through mid-March.
“Bowie was an exceptional man to work with. He knew precisely what he wanted and was very photogenic,” said Klinko.
