Titled Watch that Man II & IV, the prints were taken by Masayoshi Sukita (b.1938) during a famous photo shoot held in New York a few days before Bowie played the Radio City Music Hall on February 14, 1973. The session featured three avant garde Japanese creatives, with Yacco-San working as the stylist and the clothes provided by the fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto.

The original outfit is today part of the David Bowie Archive, acquired earlier this year by the Victoria and Albert Museum.

These prints, each signed by Masayoshi Sukita and numbered 3/10, were guided at £4000- 6000 and sold at £5500.
