Thanks ;-)



It is a set. The backgroounds have been painted. Softbox and some
grids.
I'd imagine film, as a lot of magazines still prefer to have color neg
shot.

Of course, its not "Waffle Boy", but evedentilly it is/was successful
for the magazine, which is part of the reason they did it like that.

I'll change the title, just to make you happy, OK?

From now on, it's 'hatman'.

Uh, depends. A lot of mags do indeed prefer to have color negs shot,
and color transparencies, it depends on the magazines. I should have
stated that.

It does look very over directed, as far as concept goes. But I
wouldn't go so far as to say they are crap and the subject is ****.
To me, they are over done, concept wise. As far as the subject, Bowie
is an interesting person, and a lot of his music is good. Why he
would be considered **** by you, only you can know that.

If that were true, he wouldn't need such contrived photography.

I've usually seen him photographed that way. Someone feels that he
needs it.

I don't see why you're all so critical of this shoot. I mean, just look at
the emotion, the dynamics, the sense of pent-up desire to sing 'til the sun
fizzles out...

It does occur to me how much David Bowie looks like Dirty Den, though.

Almost. Young non-photographers buying "fashion posters."

Yes, but you must admit - whoever took the photos most likely got paid a
lot for the shots, unless they are an in-house photog.

Everyone knows that the more you pay, the better the shots, and anyone
who disagrees doesn't know "art" when he sees it.
