One of London's most beautiful churches is hosting a free exhibition of David Bowie photos.

The aureate Fitzrovia Chapel — which recently started opening multiple days in the week — hosts David Bowie - A London Day from 1-20 March 2024. It's a collection of photos snapped of the late singer-songwriter by Kevin Davies on a single day in December 1992.

Taken ahead of Bowie's 18th studio album release Black Tie White Noise, the 20 photographs are presented as diptychs and triptychs — both posed and natural — and according to Davies "show the photographic process beyond a commission."

Says exhibition curator Dylan Jones: "Not only does it show David Bowie's extraordinary attention to detail, but it also shows Kevin Davies' ability to shape and catalogue that narrative. I love these pictures."

Whether you're a Bowie fan or not, a trip to the Fitzrovia Chapel is a visual feast, its Italianate rib-vaulted ceiling, encrusted with many thousands of gilded mosaic tiles. It also won't cost you a penny.
