David Bowie The Archer Fine Art Poster Print Hand Signed by David Bowie and Photographer John Robert Rowlands. This iconic image of David Bowie as The Thin White Duke was taken by renowned Rock photographer, John Rowlands, on February 26th, 1976, at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Canada. Having seen the previous evening’s show on the 1976 Station To Station / IsolarTour , Rowlands was primed to capture the image of Bowie as The Archer while the singer was preparing to fire his imaginary bow and arrow. The pose was used as a signal for Bowies lighting engineer to kill the lights. The picture was taken moments before the lights were killed. Rowlands took the shot about 30 feet away from the stage and he credits his Hasselblad camera for producing an image that is striking in its sharp tonal range of whites, blacks and grays. This Fine Art Print was produced from the original negative and has been re-created in 3 sizes (small, medium and large). Each size being an edition of 100 prints worldwide. Each of the prints is numbered and hand-signed in pencil by both David Bowie and John Rowlands, with every print also being accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. (COA) John Rowlands travelled to the UK in Feb 2013 to sign the prints at St Pauls Gallery in Birmingham. They were then dispatched to David Bowie in New York to sign. The Archer is among Bowies favourite photographs and has is included in the exhibition ‘David Bowie is’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
