Photographer Leee Black Childers landed his first tour managing job on the Ziggy Stardust tour that travelled the UK, North America and Japan, after stage producing Andy Warhol’s Pork. The gossip is that he and lead actress, Cherry Vanilla, conned themselves journalists to befriend David Bowie. This is how Childers had the opportunity to snap this unique shot of Bowie (as Ziggy) sporting his trademark feather boa and singing a song from the album that catapulted his fame.
