David Bowie by Geoff MacCormack
Photographer: Geoff MacCormack
Location: Fenton Lake, New Mexico (now Fenton Lake State Park).
“David chose this image, from The Man Who Fell To Earth 1975, for RCA Records publicity posters in the late seventies. I love the lines of this image; there seems to be a seamless energy drawn in by the unseen source of fire. I feel some guilt in as much as I turned him on to the Gitane cigarette he’s lighting. In my defence (and his) we did smoke this brand for aesthetic reasons: the delightful artwork on the packet by M. Ponty of a gypsy dancer in a plume of smoke.”
