Bowie as Mephistopheles ♥ from the opera Faust by Charles Gounod. Bowie is wearing a slightly altered version of traditional garb, wearing long breeches that come down to his knees with stockings, with a jerkin worn under his cloak/jacket
The Japanese photographer Masayoshi Sukita who did the “Heroes” cover also shot so many alternative portraits from that session. It’s a sad occasion to be able to share all these great Bowie portraits.
