"From his start as Davy Jones to his gender-bending turn as Ziggy Stardust. His performance as The Man Who Fell to Earth, and his transformation into the Thin White Duke. David Bowie, and the photographers that captured him on film, deserve to be celebrated. This is the perfect way to start off the exhibits and sales we're going to have this year." Casey Fannin, Director

Featuring photographs by Duffy, Gerald Fearnley, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Guido Harari, Markus Klinko, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O'Neill, Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Masayoshi Sukita, Barry Schultz, and Barrie Wentzell.

Bowie's energy and bold style drew the lenses of the talented photographers who worked with him both on and off stage. They captured electric performances, candid, behind-the-scenes photos of him casually hanging out with fellow icons Iggy Pop, Trent Reznor, and Tina Turner, as well as crafting highly stylized shots that were to become legendary album covers.

"An enigma and masterpiece of his own creation, it's no secret that the multitudes of David Bowie have redefined the very essence of rock & roll," said Marcelle Murdock, director of Morrison Hotel Gallery in NY. "From the Aladdin Sane album cover shot by Duffy to the intimate portraits of Geoff MacCormack, this exhibition explores the late artist in his countless angles and identities. As much a tribute to the man, the myth and the iconic moments that forever changed the music world as a celebration of the photographers that have immortalized the legend in glitter and glory, BOWIE is bound to be this spring's most talked about show."

BOWIE will open one week before the Brooklyn Museum debuts its exclusive David Bowie exhibit featuring costumes, art, and other items from the David Bowie Archive, including a collection of photographs by the exceptional photographers whose work is available for sale at all Morrison Hotel Gallery locations (Los Angeles, NYC, Maui and online).  Click here for more info.
