A new David Bowie photography exhibition is due to open in Brighton next month.
The images set to be displayed were captured by Geoff MacCormack, a childhood friend of Bowie who, in the early 19070s, was asked to join the expanding lineup of his band, the Spiders From Mars.
MacCormack was selling advertising space for a construction paper at the time he was asked to join Bowie and the Spiders. After agreeing to be a part of the group, he set off on a three-year tour playing in various iterations of Bowie’s backing band and, crucially, took dozens of photographs.
The images MacCormack took will be displayed in an exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery next month, which is set to feature 60 shots he took as he travelled with Bowie around the world, including some taken on the Trans-Siberian Express.
