Nine images taken during the same session that Duffy shot with Bowie in 1973 arranged around the iconic Aladdin Sane Album cover image. The contact sheet reveals David's permanently dilated left eye. One of his most recognizable features gifted to him by lifelong friend George Underwood in 1962 during a fight over a girl.

Each limited edition photograph has an accompanying certificate which describes the photographic paper and size, the print number, and the size of the edition. All prints are signed and authenticated on the rear by Chris Duffy. 

Silver gelatin prints are all personally printed by Chris Duffy, who worked as Duffy's printer and assistant from 1973 to 1980 before launching his own photographic career. 

All archival pigment ink prints are printed on Archival Pigment Ink Fuji Baryte 310 gram paper.
