Masayhoshi Sukita
DAVID BOWIE. HEROES

10 March- 26 April 2017

HEROES, a project created with ThinkDesign, presents for the first time in Switzerland the photos shot by Masayoshi Sukita, the japanese photographer who worked with David Bowie since their first meeting in 1972, when he travelled from Japan to London, drawn by its subculture, especially the mix of art, film and music. Before having even heard his music, Sukita saw a striking poster of David Bowie promoting a concert and felt he had to go, purely on the strength of the poster. He admired Bowie’s innovative performance style and related to his cinematic influences. He felt he had to secure a meeting with Bowie. The photo-shoot arranged in the summer of 1972 began a 40-plus-year collaboration between the two artists. Sukita portrayed the pop icon throughout his artistic eras- and personas.
This exhibition celebrates the long friendship between the two artists since their first meeting in London and celebrates the White Duke a year after his passing.

HEROES comprises a selection of photographs, which are part of a larger body of works by Masayoshi Sukita and are presented for the first time in Switzerland.
