The Paul Smith Space Gallery captured the fusion of British and Japanese culture at a reception for SPEED OF LIFE and the Japanese launch of Bowie and Sukita's new collaboration, the CHANGES collection.
'CHANGES at the Paul Smith Space Gallery explores the friendship between the photographer and musician through images both formal and informal. In the late 1970s, musicians and artists alike would inevitably collide. One such person caught up in this creative frenzy was a young Japanese photographer, Masayoshi Sukita. As someone that has documented the past 40 years so fervently, Sukita can now afford to enjoy being in the same position as his subjects: as the centre of attention.' - Stuart Munro, The Japan Times
The lighting, drinks, and even cubes of jelly reflected the
pink and blue theme chosen by Bowie and Sukita for their limited edition book, SPEED OF LIFE. Now both artists have selected photographs that represent their
creative partnership and its impact on both their careers. To see the CHANGES collection, click here.
