"Speed of Life" by David Bowie & Masayoshi Sukita

David Bowie & Masayoshi Sukita

Via David Bowie (Official) For Immediate Release March 19, 2012

Genesis is proud to announce SPEED OF LIFE, the new publication born out of a 40-year collaboration between musician, actor and producer, David Bowie, and photographer and designer, Masayoshi Sukita.
In their fine bound edition, the authors have opened up Sukita's archives to assemble a 300-page photo essay which, captioned with their own recollections and memories, traces the development of Bowie's remarkable career from 1972 to the present day.
Here's an exclusive peek at one of the previously unpublished shots with accompanying caption from Bowie himself...
"So, let’s try a little Kabuki face. Well, it convinces me. With my make-up man Pierre La Roche, and the help of Kabuki star Tamasaburo, I braved the world of Kabuki make-up. The cupid lips made it back to the USA along with cherry coloured cheeks." - BOWIE

  1. Bowie is awesome but $572.00 for a book of photos is too high.

  2. I wonder if this is part of his memoirs.
