Damn it new [re: Isola]  

I clearly remember that someone posted on this very same forum, around last summer, a link to a painting (or was it a sculpture?) that beared striking ressemblances to the Lodger cover photo.

Needless to say, I CAN'T FIND that link right now, even though I'm searching everything related to Lodger/artwork/painting in the forums archive...oh well, does somebody remember what that link was?

Although not necessarily a definitive inspiration for Bowie, the ressemblances were similar enough to consider it as a serious model for what became the final photo.

In reply to:

the cover is him under a microscope (squashed by the glass slide)


That's also the impression that I always get. I think the squashed nose gives it away pretty easily. I didn't know it was supposed to be a microscope though, although that it a cool way to think about it.

I know that the Ryko version has the face on the front, while the 1999 Virgin remastered edition has his feet on the front.
