50 years ago, David Bowie and Mick Rock filmed the iconic music video for the 'Life on Mars?' single released on this day, 22nd June 1973. Originally recorded in 1971, RCA Records re-released the song at the height of Bowie's fame while he was performing as Ziggy Stardust. In order to promote the single, Mick Rock shot the now famous film of Bowie in matching turquoise make-up and suit performing the song in a simple white studio - a moment in time that endures as one of the most memorable moments in Bowie's career.
Stills from the making of the music promo feature in two prints from The Moonage Daydream Collection
: 'Life on Mars
', an archival giclée collage print featuring four close-up studies of Bowie from the movie footage; and 'Life on Mars - Rip Art
', a high gloss acrylic print featuring an experimental technique that Rock dubbed 'rip art', published exclusively in this series.
