“With my first David Bowie shoot in 1974, my assistants and I expected to see a flamboyant wild man arrive, with a large entourage, groupies and cartons of booze. This was not the case. Calm, quiet and over-intelligent with a bent for the spiritual, we chatted more about philosophy and Buster Keaton than super stars or the weather.”
