ilon Art Gallery proudly presents Ricochet: David Bowie 1983, photographs by Denis O’Regan. Denis O’Regan traveled the world with Bowie in 1983 for the ‘Serious Moonlight’ tour. Denis O’Regan’s portraits of David Bowie provide a candid insight into the private and personal side of this iconic figure.
This exhibition features personal photographs of the David Bowie including live and backstage shots too, Ricochet provides unprecedented access into Bowie’s life. Denis O’Regan stated “seeing the Ziggy Stardust concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1973 inspired me to take up rock photography”.
To coincide with the exhibition and with the same title Ricochet: David Bowie 1983, is the most ambitious David Bowie book project yet. Ricochet is a unique limited edition book charting David Bowie’s 1983 world tour, featuring offstage photographs, lyrics, exclusive interview, memorabilia, vinyl & fine art prints Produced in collaboration with David Bowie, unfortunately not finished before his passing but proud to present it now.
Containing over 1000 images each approved by Bowie and many never before published I’m excited to present this boxed set. Also included are three limited edition prints signed (and numbered) by Denis O’Regan. The boxed set is a limited edition set of 2,000, signed (and numbered) by Denis O’Regan.
ilon Art Gallery was founded in 2014 by archivist and curator Loni Efron.

The gallery focuses on emerging and established photography. working as a photo editor for Keith Richards for nearly two decades, Loni Efron has found her niche in Rock and Roll photograher so it is no surprise she teamed up withe Denis O’Regan to bring David Bowie to Harlem.

She created iArchive and iArchve Basic as part of of goal of organizing and monetize photographer’s archives. See www.ilonartgallery.com or www.ilon.com for more information.
