David Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust

photos: The David Bowie Archive

David Bowie was fearlessly who he was and dared to also be who he was not. No doubt he inspired us all to be different, to highlight and bring out the wild and fragile life in each one of us. That's where Ziggy Stardust came from. After 1 hit record and about three years of experimental work, androgynous and flamboyant Ziggy was born. As a photographer, the photographs produced during this short era were the most innovative and visually appealing images of all time. 

Today, Bowie died after a long battle with liver cancer. He will, however, live in our internet and hearts forever. Above are some of the best photoshoots featuring, Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie's alter ego.
