The Rise of David Bowie by Mick Rock

With the release of his groundbreaking album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars in 1972, David Bowie found himself propelled into becoming one the world’s biggest icons. Documenting his exceptional rise to fame was Bowie’s friend and photographer, Mick Rock.

Having bonded with the star, Rock was granted unprecedented access to Bowie’s personal life between the years of 1972 and 1973; from his backstage rituals to his eating habits, Rock was able to capture it all. With high quality, full colour photographs, The Rise of David Bowie is a beautiful tribute to a star that defined a generation.
