Celebrity photographer Markus Klinko is selling his entire archive to raise money for NHS workers battling coronavirus. The Swiss-born photographer’s collection includes David Bowie’s last major shoot before his death in 2016, as well as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Billie Eilish and Kate Winslet.
The campaign, which will run until April 22, will see works of art sold at auction to raise money for NHS Charities Together. Included in the collection are 12 black-and-white photographs taken of the Bowie in 2009 shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“That strange, post-9/11 period felt so much like today. Bowie was a symbol of hope...so it felt fitting to make his image the lead piece for the auction.” Klinko has worked on shoots for Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Harper’s Bazaar - photographing Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Kanye West and Naomi Campbell among others.
