Contact sheet of David Bowie images taken during an interview at 252 Regent Street, London in January 1972. One of the images was used on the cover of the Melody Maker music paper.

Barrie recalls : It was a rather overcast day in London and Mick Watt’s and I went over to interview David at his manager Tony DeFries’ rather small and grubby office on Regent Street. As we entered, David was sitting very pretty in this amazingly bright outfit, lazily smoking a cigarette and reading a book. “Hello, come in,” he said, smiling, and after we got over the shock of the new Bowie look, Mick and I sat down and had a cup of tea and a chat about what he was up to with this ‘new look’. During the chat/interview David announced he was gay and always had been much to the shock of our Mick Watts who, though a bit stunned, continued the interview with a quizzical expression of disbelief, while I took pictures and tried not to laugh. True, there were many gay folks in the ‘biz’ but none of them would admit it to the press. I thought David was ‘pulling our leg’ and it was just part of his new act with Ziggy. This photo was used on the front page of the Melody Maker for the next weeks issue, reversed so David is looking the other way. It caused a lot of talk and as David told me later, the publicity had made him, or rather Ziggy, a star.

You can add framing to your print purchase if needed, or simply order the print unframed. Our framing service is provided by a reputable, local professional custom framer here in Austin. Prints are framed in a classic museum style frame using archival techniques. This consists of a 3" white matt, plain black wood surround and conservation clear, UV protected glass. We are unable to frame the 30"x40" print option due to shipping issues for such a large frame. Click HERE to view a sample.
