Watch: Dean Holtermann Remembers David Bowie With Footage Of Mick Rock’s Bowie Exhibition

by | Jan 12, 2016 | Art on Bay, Music on Bay


As you’ve probably read, iconic musician, David Bowie, passed on two days ago. In remembrance of the artist who inspired millions, we thought we’d share some footage from a Staten Islander who was blessed to spend time with Bowie personally. Dean Holtermann, a filmmaker and musician in his own right, has a treasure trove of footage including the clips below of famed photographer, Mick Rock unveiling his “Exposed” book (which features a number of iconic Bowie images) and doing signings at his David Bowie exhibition in Toronto back in 2013.

“I was fortunate enough to experience a closeness to David Bowie through Mick Rock,” explained Holtermann. “[He’s] absolutely one of my favorite artists. I learned so much through David and Mick. I hate to see him go, but David, like Elvis, lives on forever.”

Take a look at Dean’s Mick Rock footage below:
