Photograph of a signed Polaroid of David Bowie on the set of the Loving The Alien video 3.12.1985
"It was around 1:30 in the morning at the end of two days of filming David Bowie’s Loving The Alien video, and I had to say to the crew 'sorry but we still need to do the shots for the single sleeve.' And everyone stayed. The make-up artist applied the blue face paint, the lighting guys set up a light, and the art dept put the plastic “stained glass” on the wall. Of the studio bathroom. And David Bowie stood in the bathtub while I took these shots" - Steve

I’ve admired Steves work for years. I’m a fan of everyone he shoot’s. That says a lot about the person behind the lens. There are certain artists who stand out. Bowie and The Clash are two of those. To capture them means first off, you were there. That means you were on the scene. And to capture moments so intimate and personal speaks to the precious relationship between the photographer and the performer. Your not just documenting a moment, you’re freezing their soul in an image for generations to come. You’re telling the story of their life in the click of a button.
