Heroes - Bowie by Sukita

Florence makes its personal tribute to David Bowie, opening the doors of Palazzo Medici Riccardi, one of the richest palaces in history and charm. The exhibition presents 60 large-format photographs, some of which are shown in national preview, which retrace a partnership lasting more than forty years between the legend of pop rock and Masayoshi Sukita, the great master of Japanese photography . On show not only the iconic shots that illustrated the cover of the album "Heroes", but also historical photographs taken from Sukita'a personal archive, that tell a friendship started in the seventies.
During the three months of the exhibition, a series of acoustic concerts will be held in the courtyard of the palace. Books and merchandising dedicated to Bowie will be available in the bookshop of the museum.
“Seeing David Bowie on stage opened up my eyes to his creative genius. Bowie was different to the other rock and rollers, he had something special that I knew I had to photograph” (Masayoshi Sukita)
