London’s Imitate Modern gallery featured David Bowie Unseen, a selection of rare and never before released portraits of the beloved artist, all taken by British photographer and filmmaker Tony McGee. The two immediately bonded after being introduced to each other at a cocktail party, which started a 30+ year professional and friendly relationship. The precious collection shows Bowie in his private off camera moments —- an amazing privilege for fans and admirers of one of the world’s most beloved musical icons.
