The Rise of David Bowie. 1972-1973

In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. With it landed Bowie's Stardust alter-ego.

A key passenger on this glam trip into the stratosphere was fellow Londoner and photographer Mick Rock, who worked as Bowie's official photographer from 1972-1973. 

Taschen's limited edition book brings together the best of Rock's Bowie portfolio with spectacular stage shots and intimate backstage portraits.
