© Duffy, 1973

Taken by Duffy during the second of five sessions with David Bowie; Duffy's most famous photograph dates from the 1970s and is the iconic and revolutionary cover of David Bowie's album Aladdin Sane, a shot that became the defining look of Bowie's long career, and has been referred to as the "Mona Lisa of Pop".
This "Eyes Open" image was unveiled for use in the record breaking V&A exhibition - "David Bowie IS." This image has led the tour around the world to Canada, Brazil, Germany, USA, France, Australia, The Netherlands, Japan, Italy, and Spain.
This startling image was rediscovered in the archive in 2011. The Victoria & Albert Museum used this photo as the lead image for the "David Bowie IS" exhibition which has toured worldwide and attracted over 1.6 million visitors. David had a fight with his friend George Underwood over a girl, which damaged one eye and they appear as different colours. David later thanked George for his unusual look.
This image has become almost as well known as the original.
