Unseen David Bowie Photos
A new exhibition of more than 20 original pictures by world renowned photographer Markus Klinko will open in Basel on March 24th. Following a very successful exhibition at the Markowicz Fine Art Gallery in Miami, the prints will now be available to see in Europe at the Licht Feld Gallery, Basel. Markus Klinko is a fashion / celebrity photographer, who worked closely with David Bowie in some of his most creative years of his life, and photographed the cover of the album Heathen. Klinko used a Fujifilm X-Pro1 to shoot award winning images, and was one of the first professional photographers to start using the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and is a featured X-Pro2 shooter, as seen in this YouTube edit.
Unseen Bowie pictures
After Bowie’s death earlier this year, Markus decided some his archive pictures need new life. ‘After he died, I decided to pick some never-before used images from my archives and blow them up really big and bring them around the world’. Markus Klinko shot the original Bowie pictures on Fujifilm Provia medium format film, and with Fujifilm’s help, has had the original transparencies scanned and printed on Fujiflex Crystal Archive Material. Markus chose Fujifilex material carefully as it is designed exclusively for high-quality digital output on large-format laser printers. The PET (polyester) base means prints are superbly smooth with a sharp, transparent super-gloss finish.
Attendees at the David Bowie exhibition will be able to meet Markus Klinko at the private Opening on Thursday, March 24th, at the Licht Feld Gallery. Klinko’s high quality, fine-art photographic prints of the late David Bowie will be available for sale exclusively at the event. The photographs are limited editions autographed by Klinko, and are available in a variety of sizes. After the March 24th event, the exhibition will be open to the public from March 25th to April 10th. Markus Klinko also uses the Fujifilm X-Pro1 to shoot award winning images, and was one of the first professional photographers to start using the Fujifilm X-Pro2 premium digital camera. Since then, Klinko is featured in an X-Pro2.
