Photographs by Gijsbert Hanekroot

16 July – 27 August 2016 – Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam

On the occasion of the publication of the new book ‘David Bowie – The Seventies’ Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam presents an exhibition of Dutch photographer Gijsbert Hanekroot. The exhibition runs from 16 July until 27 August.

‘David Bowie – The Seventies’ gives an overview of the most important period in the career of the legendary singer. Gijsbert Hanekroot and David Bowie met six times. The gallery shows colour and black & white portraits, studio pictures and photographs of concerts.

Gijsbert Hanekroot photographed the ‘Ziggy Stardust’ tour in 1973 at Earls Court in London. He made wonderful pictures of this memorable show with constant costume changes. In 1974, Bowie was in Hilversum for a shooting in the TopPop studio with the song ‘Rebel Rebel’. Not long after he received an Edison at the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam during a festive press conference. Gijsbert also photographed the ‘Thin White Duke’ tour in 1976 at the concert in Ahoy Rotterdam and later the 1978 tour.

Gijsbert Hanekroot (1945) started as a professional photographer in 1969. He witnessed the explosion of the rock scene in the seventies, which he captured in numerous iconic images. From 1970 to 1975 he was a photographer for music magazine OOR, where he was succeeded by Anton Corbijn. In 2008 his book ‘Abba…Zappa Seventies Rock Photography’ was published, with which he exhibited in London, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo.
