Photography by Sukita.

Bowie’s 1977 photo session with Masayoshi Sukita took place in Japan, whilst Bowie helped to promote Iggy Pop’s album ‘The Idiot’. Bowie wanted to allude to a slight punk look (more evident in some of the outakes than in the final cover shot) and experimented with several leather and flying jackets.
