Events in Moscow - January 2019

Photo exhibit: David Bowie. The Man Who Fell to Earth (11.01 - 31.03.19)

An exhibit entitled “David Bowie. The Man Who Fell to Earth” has been running at the Lumiere Brothers Centre for Photography since 11 January. The exhibit includes photographs of Bowie by Steve Schapiro, who took portraits of rock stars, movie actors and politicians in the 1960s and 70s.
The exhibit spotlights portraits of the rock singer from a 12-hour photo session in Los Angeles in 1974. That was the first time Bowie and the photographer met. The session produced captivating images, some of which were later used by Bowie as covers for his albums Station to Station, Low, and Nothing Has Changed, and featured on the covers of People and Rolling Stone magazines.
Of special interest are photos taken during the shooting of Nicolas Roeg’s sci-fi movie The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). The film earned David Bowie the label of odd creature who found himself on our planet in passing.
The exhibit showcases rare shots of Bowie’s TV appearance with pop diva Cher in a Cher Show in the 1970s.  
Steve Schapiro’s camera has captured many celebrities including Martin Luther King, Jacqueline Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, Andy Warhol, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese. His photos from the sets of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather became iconic.      
Also, there is a special video and lecture programme devoted to David Bowie’s life and career. Visitors will learn more about his movie roles and his fashion-changing heroes.
The exhibit will run through the end of March.
