David Bowie ‘The Archer’  by photographer John Robert Rowlands. This iconic image of David Bowie as The Thin White Duke was taken by renowned Rock photographer, John Rowlands, on February 26th, 1976, at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Canada.
Having seen the previous evening’s show on the 1976 Station To Station / Isolar Tour, Rowlands was primed to capture the image of Bowie as ‘The Archer’ while the singer was preparing to ‘fire’ his imaginary bow and arrow.
 The pose was used as a signal for Bowie’s lighting engineer to kill the lights. The picture was taken moments before the lights were killed.
 Rowlands took the shot about 30 feet away from the stage and he credits his Hasselblad camera for producing an image that is striking in its sharp tonal range of whites, blacks and greys.
 ‘The Archer’ is among Bowie’s favourite photographs and has been adopted as the main promotional image for the V&A’s ‘David Bowie is’ Exhibition in London, March through August, 2013.
