ie and the trust they shared allowed him to capture, in hundreds of photographs and four music video

s, the artist’s transformation into Ziggy Stardust and the ’70s most intriguing and otherworldly ro

The exhibition opens with a quote from Bowie: “Mick sees me the way I see myself.”

It was what Bowie said to his manager when he reviewed the photos that Rock had taken for him.

Under one photo, shot in a dressing room in Scotland in 1973, a line explains Bowi

Footwear makers: cut and run from tariffsrtment at the

US sneaker giant Nike and fancy shoemaker Allen Edmonds have joined the chorus of busines

s groups calling for the White House to hit the brakes on its move to raise duties on Chinese shoes an

d other products, further challenging President Donald Trump’s claim that China is paying for the tariffs.

the companies. It was posted on the website of the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA).

n for a year, but some on Brady’s committee had pushed for those rules to be change

d in order to try to force her out earlier if she refused to set out a clear departure date.

A BBC reporter said on Thursday those talks were due to be

called off soon after the ruling Conservatives gave up on any hope of a resolution.

“I was scared to the soul, and I thought about death every day,” he said.

By then, Zhao, who was 36 at the time, had received various treatme

“The treatments didn’t work well,” he said. “At l

Zhao was lucky. He waited for just around two weeks for an available organ, which was distributed through a national compu

In March, a year after the surgery, Zhao enrolled to become an organ dono
