Bowie by Markus Klinko

Markus Klinko is a celebrity & fashion photographer with a long history of amazing photographs of famous people. In the latest unveiling of his exhibition, he introduces 9 more previously unseen images of David Bowie to the collection. Stuart Fawcett (ePz member JackAllTog) went along for ePHOTOzine to Mayfair's exclusive Tramp members club to see more.

Luckily for me I was talking to Markus as we were ushered through to the display area to see for the new images for the first time. Markus was visibly and verbally moved expressing how happy he was to see them presented in the Tramp environment, and by how good they looked printed out as large images to look at.

He does not print out his work to display at home. There seemed to be an almost heavenly aura around some of the photographs of David Bowie and Markus was keen to point these out. Whether David is looking down on us and floating in a most peculiar way will be up to you to decide.

Markus really does focus on all aspects of the image and clearly knows what he wants from both the celebrity images and the equipment he uses; A 20 year plus close relationship with Fujifilm is one thing he attributes to the success of the images, he both loves Fujifilm and also the GFX100 which he says is simply the best camera ever.

What’s interesting with Markus is that he is passionate about technology as well as the artistic side of photography and says he works closely with Fujifilm designers on the technical details of the cameras. He did not seem to be troubled by the art vs technology debate many photographers seem to have, it’s all just one thing to produce the image you want.

With lots of existing images and all the new ones, this should be a great exhibition for both Bowie and music fans, or even if you just want to see examples of Markus Klinko’s work. Don’t worry if you don’t have tramp membership at the moment, you can head over to Hampstead’s Zebra One Gallery on October 7 to see the exhibition. If you want to buy any images then 10% of the sale will go to the charity Macmillan Cancer Support to recognise that they are trying to find a cure for cancer which affects many people including David Bowie.

The event attracted all kinds of people and some were very emotional with the connection they got with the photographs, from Charity workers to LifeStyle publishers, to other photographers to socialites the event was a warm friendly affair with a super friendly and helpful Markus Klinko at its core.
