Unseen David Bowie photographs to be sold at charity auction

A series of previously unseen photographs of David Bowie are heading to auction for charity next month.

The images are the work of renowned photographer and director Markus Klinko, who worked with the late musical icon for many years.

"Markus is as much of a visionary in the art world as Bowie was in the music world," said Denise Rich, Co-Founder of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. "We are extremely honored to be a part of this celebration of two incredible artists."

Klinko first met Bowie in 2001, whilst working with his wife Iman for the cover of her book 'I Am Iman', and began a working relationship that would last 15 years until the singer's death in January 2016.

During this time Klinko photographed Bowie for magazines including GQ and Interview, as well as for the cover of his acclaimed 2002 album 'Heathen', producing one of the most recognisable images of Bowie's career.

Klinko has also collaborated with the likes of Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Kanye West and Naomi Campbell, and has created covers for famous albums including  Beyoncé’s 'Dangerously in Love'.

The photographs will be unveiled to the public for the first time on February 25, during a special gala event at the Markowicz Fine Art Gallery in Miami, followed by an exhibition which runs until mid-March.

Thirty-five of Klinko’s prints, including those of Bowie, will then be donated to Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research and sold in an online auction starting on March 31, 2016.
