David Bowie (subject)
Duana LeMay (photographer)

N.p. N.p., 1974. Collection of twelve vintage double weight photographs, two vintage black and white photographs, and two vintage borderless color photographs of David Bowie performing onstage as part of the Diamond Dogs Tour in 1974. With the stamp of photographer Duana LeMay on the verso.

A concert tour in support of Bowie's 1974 album of the same name, considered by some to be the musician's farewell to glam rock, heavily influenced by George Orwell's post-apocalyptic novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four." The tour was purportedly difficult, in part due to the enormous cost and technical issues associated with the intricate set and props required for each show (executed by legendary set designer Mark Ravitz) and in part due to Bowie's growing dependence on cocaine. In its original incarnation, the tour lasted two months, before the baroque set was abandoned and the name changed to "The Soul Tour."

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with some faint soil.
