 Some of the pictures

Mr Sukita did, at least, 5 sessions with David Bowie along his career starting in 1972, two other very famous sessions followed, in 1973 (red background and Japanese clothes + make up for David) and in 1977 for the cover of "Heroes". Last two were in 1989 (David with a small beard) and in 2002. We also have some candid pictures from David Bowie and... some black/white Live Pics with The Spiders from Mars in Japan featuring Mick Ronson which are absolutely stunning.
All the pics were supervised by the photographer himself and send from Japan to France.

This exhibition just opened today, on the same day as the "David Is" exhibition @ Philharmonie. Some very famous pictures are here including two classic sessions from 1973 & 1977 ("Heroes").
We are very lucky today as Mr Masayoshi Sukita is here answering questions from journalists (with the help of a French/Japanese translator).

A must see exhibition (and it's free) if you're in the city center and heading to the "David Is" exhibition.
Of course all the pics are on sale starting @ 300 euros for the smaller ones to 4000 euros, all signed.

Petite visite à La Galerie Stardust ( à deux pas de République) afin d’apprécier le travail photographique de Monsieur Sukita, présent cet après midi pour répondre aux questions des journalistes et des fans de David Bowie venus nombreux. Un vieux monsieur extrêmement calme, digne et très gentil malgré l’agitation autour de lui, à la Japonaise quoi ! Un Monsieur qui a commencé sa carrière "Musicale" en prenant des clichés de Jimi Hendrix à New York City puis en enchainant sur Londres avec des sessions pour David Bowie (entre autres) après avoir présenté son book au manager du chanteur Anglais encore peu connu à l'époque, le début d'une longue association et amitié de plus de 40 ans avec le Thin White Duke avec qui il est toujours en contacte.
Plein de superbes photos,en couleurs et noir/blanc tirées de sessions, devenues mythiques avec le temps, dont les plus célèbres étant celles qu'il réalisa pour la pochette de l'album "Heroes".
Un grand merci au directeur de la galerie pour son hospitalité.
