Markus Klinko: Bowie Unseen

Addicted Art Gallery
5 min readDec 7, 2022

In 2001, award-winning international fashion / celebrity photographer Markus Klinko spent 8 hours in his New York studio with David Bowie shooting images for David’s “Heathen” album cover.

On the strength of this body of work, Markus was asked in 2002 to create the cover image for GQ’s “Man of the Year” issue honouring David. The resulting image shows the rock star fearlessly posing with a pack of wild wolves.

The images from the sessions have been released as the “Bowie Unseen” series.
