Unused Black Tie White Noise Covers
Unused images created by Nick Knight for David Bowie's 1993 album, Black Tie White Noise. The cover concept focused on a simple portrait of Bowie’s face mirrored down the middle - the front cover would be the two right hand sides and the back the two left hand sides. The result would be a slightly strange, disturbing vision that left the viewer feeling that something was not quite right. The concept was inspired by Bowie's distinct eyes, which had different sized pupils due to anisocoria, the result of a teenage tussle. The original shot, alongside the front cover option and the back cover option are shown here. In the end, a different image of Bowie by Knight, which features the close crop of the singer's face, slightly tilted, was selected.
