Lucy Bell Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of photographs by Geoff MacCormack documenting his time and travels with David Bowie. 

Geoff MacCormack, AKA Warren Peace, was one of David Bowie's oldest and closest friends, their relationship dating back to their childhoods’ in Bromley.  MacCormack toured with Bowie for three years as a backing vocalist, dancer and percussionist.  During this time he recorded with Bowie on five albums — from Aladdin Sane to Station to Station, also co-writing the track "Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me” on Diamond Dogs, and Turn Blue with Bowie on Iggy Pops album Lust for Life.

As Bowie preferred not to fly, he and MacCormack travelled together by boat, train and road.  The photographs in the exhibition explore this period, and give a rare insight into their friendship. The exhibition also includes a short film of their journey through Siberia & Russia shot by David Bowie, intercut with MacCormacks photographs.  

Included in this show will be some of MacCormacks images signed by Bowie himself. POA. 

“Just suppose your Brilliant Pal said: “Will you join my band [The Spiders from Mars] and come on a tour? And would you mind awfully if we travelled [first class] by sea to New York, and then sailed from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Canada, Hawaii and on to Japan? And then, from Japan to Siberia, through Russia [Trans-Siberian Express] to Moscow [for May Day Parade], Poland, East and West Germany, just in time for tea at the George V Hotel in Paris? Followed by a relaxing holiday in Rome, just to chill out?

And then, just suppose, when you thought all the fun had finished, your Brilliant Pal said: “Would you mind being a dog [Diamond], and coming back to New York on an even better ship, eating caviar every day and joining another band, then another band, helping out on a few albums [six], and generally hanging out and having the time of your life for a couple more years?

Supposing all that happened…Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have kept a photo or two?” Geoff MacCormack
