In 2011 the Aladdin Sane Black & White Negative remaster was created by Chris Duffy. This was to coincide with the opening of a Duffy:Bowie exhibition in Beverly Hills, California at Stephen Webster Gallery. The image was in such high demand that it was made accessible in an open edition. The image is printed on matte paper further enhancing the depth of the blacks and the effect of the image making it a perfect contrast or companion to the other iconic Aladdin Sane images.
Taken by Duffy during the second of Five Sessions with David Bowie – Duffy’s most famous photograph dates from 1973 and is the iconic and revolutionary cover of David Bowie’s album – Aladdin Sane. A shot that became the defining look of Bowie’s long career, and has been referred to as the “Mona Lisa of pop.”
