Brixton based Photofusion is collaborating with photography collective Rockarchive to produce a unique exhibition dedicated to the memory of David Bowie. The exhibition “Silhouettes and Shadows” is a visual celebration of Bowie’s life and career as remembered by the music photographers who knew and worked with him. It will feature prints and images spanning Bowie’s career and includes works by acclaimed music photographers Ray Stevenson, Fernando Aceves, Mark Mawston, and Steve Rapport, some of which have not been exhibited before in the UK.

The highlight of the show is a range of previously unseen images taken by Fernando Aceves during Bowie’s only visit to Mexico in 1997. The candid photos show the legendary musician enjoying major cultural sites such as Teotihuacan and Palacio de Bellas Artes.
