Lodger 1979 Bowie

David Bowie's "Lodger" album, 1979

"The cover for "Lodger" was a collaboration between David, the photographer Duffy, and myself. I loved this solution to the problem of David being photographed falling. Shooting him from above, on a specially made table built to match the falling form. The table was designed to be completely obscured by David's body (You can see the table in the 1st photograph above). The wash hand basin was laid underneath the table on the floor." 

- Derek Boshier

David Bowie's Where Are We Now? - first review

Neil McCormick delights in 'The most surprising, perfect and welcome comeback in rock history'.

The Surprise:  Quietus  "After a decade of artlessness Bowie is back."

                                    The new David Bowie albumThe Next Daydemonstrates and showcases the virtues of, and reasserts the radicalism of, seemingly traditional rock music.
