Photographer Brian Duffy had an eight-year working relationship with David Bowie shooting five key sessions over this period, providing the creative concept as well as the photographic image for three album covers. First came the iconic 1973 shoot for the cover of Aladdin Sane, often nicknamed 'the Mona Lisa of pop', when Duffy interpreted Bowie's original title of 'A Lad Insane’ as “Aladdin Sane”. Duffy the went on to shot the cover for 'Lodger' in 1979 and in 1980, the cover for Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). Duffy's input had a significant influence on the creation of Bowie's chameleon-like public persona and his continual pioneering reinvention.
