Steve Schapiro talks Bowie to Chicagoist

“It’s a Drive-In Saturday”

For those of you in Chicago to see the David Bowie Is exhibition, you may want to tie in a trip to the Ed Pashcke Art Center where the current exhibition is Steve Schapiro: Warhol, Reed, & Bowie.
The photographer spoke to Chicagoist about the exhibition recently. Here’s an edited extract from the article regarding Bowie.

    CHICAGOIST: You're a great observer of humanity, even with iconic, larger-then-life figures like Bowie. I am thinking specifically of the Bowie photograph from The Man Who Fell to Earth, one of the highlights of the show. This was printed at the last minute for this exhibit, correct? There is a sombreness and vulnerability in this work while it is magical.

    STEVE SCHAPIRO: It's an image that was never printed till about two weeks before the show. I looked at that transparency and realized it is a really good picture, and it was only when I thought we needed another Bowie picture to round out the exhibit that I went back and looked at the transparencies and I found this image. It had never been edited or printed. It is entirely untouched.

    CHICAGOIST: Do you find when you are photographing a performer like Bowie, a quintessential performer and artist, I am thinking, like you were saying, he was very aware he was being photographed, but he also seemed to put his guard down for you. Can you talk about that?

    STEVE SCHAPIRO: I think Bowie is very smart and I think he has a great sense of images and in coming up with new kinds of images. The first session I did with him started at four in the afternoon and ended at four the next morning when I did that picture of him on the motorcycle, and we used the headlights of a car to light it. He would constantly come up with new costumes and I would pick up my camera to photograph him and it would be an incredible outfit, but he would stop me and say, "Wait a minute, I need to fix something," and he would go to the dressing room and come back 20 minutes later in something totally different. Fortunately, there would be a lot of things he would try on, so we would get a lot of pictures. The picture of him smoking a cigarette was a cover of Rolling Stone and it has been used a lot, but it was originally the cover for Rolling Stone.

You can read the full thing on the Chicagoist site, where there are also links to the Steve Schapiro: Warhol, Reed, & Bowie Exhibition.
Speaking of The Man Who Fell to Earth, if you’re in Chicago over the weekend to see David Bowie Is, you may also want to attend the Bowie Film Festival while you’re at the MCA.
You are also encouraged to attend the film festival as a character played by Bowie in one of the films. TJ Newton the thirsty alien disguised as a human, Jareth the child-snatching Goblin King, friend of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, or the star of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars himself.
We’ll leave you with the full schedule, which kicks off with Basquiat on Saturday at 1:00pm.

Join the MCA for a weekend that celebrates some of David Bowie’s greatest moments on the silver screen: from cult classics like Labyrinth (1986) and The Hunger (1983) to Bowie’s notable performances in films such as The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) and his portrayal of Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Basquiat (1996). All screenings take place in the Edlis Neeson Theater.
Come as the Goblin King, Warhol, or the vampire John Blaylock: visitors are invited to dress up in Bowie-inspired attire for this event. Tag #DavidBowieIs on your photos.

Basquiat tells the story of the meteoric rise and fall of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat starts out as SAMO—a graffiti artist living in a cardboard box in Thompkins Square Park—before he is “discovered” by Andy Warhol, and the New York art world quickly makes him a star. Success, however, has a high price, and Basquiat pays with friendship, love, and eventually, his life.
