David Bowie with Liz Taylor

Photography by Terry O’Neill

When I look back at my photographs of her [Elizabeth], it’s always this set that I come back to—a young David Bowie in a nervous embrace, Elizabeth in total command. In the fading light of Hollywood director George Cukor’s home, a pop star meeting a superstar. At Elizabeth’s request, I had arranged the whole thing. An unlikely meeting, an intoxicating pair; the shots were instantly snapped up all over the world.


David Bowie shares a cigarette with actress Elizabeth Taylor in Beverly Hills, California, 1975. It was the first occasion that the pair had met.
