Around 30 photos are on display at New York’s Morrison Hotel Gallery, which chronicles their four decade relationship, which began when they were introduced by Lou Reed :“After I saw the joint concert with David Bowie and Lou Reed, which I really enjoyed, I showed David my portfolio. He gave me the opportunity to shoot him.”

“We had a translator only in the beginning. I was able to say simple sentence like, ‘please sit here,’ or ‘please stand here.’ Once the shooting started he already knew what to do on the set.”
