As an artist with unprecedented access to famed musician David Bowie, photographer Edward Bell held a close kinship with the late singer. He photographed Bowie during much of the singer’s time in the spotlight and later found Bowie as a patron of his artwork. Thus, Bell has coped with Bowie's sudden death in 2016 by assembling one of the most substantial books of his most striking images of the late artist.


Unmade Up: Recollections of a Friendship with David Bowie showcases original artwork and never-before-published photographs of the musician that Bell has selected to illustrate their unique relationship alongside Bell's own written account of the bond they shared. As intimate as it is intriguing, Unmade Up is a nuanced and invigorating publication in a vast field of Bowie literature.
