After hearing the news I was already in the creative thinking process.
At first, I just waned to capture simple 2-3 looks, but after I received way more willing participants to be, I broadened my points of view and expanded into more details.
The pink sax set refers to David's childhood and his first musical instrument he learned to play.
The second set represents that fame peak that he finally reached reached at some point, as well as his well-known song.
The third set is dedicated to David's collaboration with Kansai Yamamoto, another influential figure in creating of David's personae. Those overall costumes were made from scratch especially for this shoot.
The fifth set refers to gloomy days when David was lost in his thoughts (like we all are sometimes).
The last set is dedicated to David's last album 'Blackstar', his death and rebirth.
