Sadness swept through the nation when legendary Brixton boy, David Bowie, passed away in January. While there was a surge of musical tributes, inspired art and images that resurfaced around the time of his death, there are still photographs of the superstar which have remained archived for nearly 50 years. These photographs, captured by Gerald Fearnley – the brother of Derek Fearnley who was part of The Buzz, who backed Bowie in 1960’s and played on his first album – are now going on display at Snap Galleries, near Green Park.
From Tuesday 16th August until Saturday 24th September 2016, a collection of black and white images, which include a rare unpublished colour outtake from the late and great Bowie’s first self-titled album cover, will be on display. Entry to the exhibition is free – for more information check out the Snap Galleries website here.
