Bowie Ashes Fag

David Robert Jones 08.01.1947-10.01.2016.

One of the most unique, free, inspirational and iconic artists to ever come out of Britain. Like many others, his music played a big part in the soundtrack of my youth- Ashes to Ashes (the video shoot this image is taken from) is one of my favourite songs, not just of Bowie’s, but ever.

May he rest peacefully xx
