Rare David Sylvian Photo – Help!!!

Postby Nicrobliz on Fri Oct 19, 2012 8:11 am

When I was a youngster, I once come across a brilliant photo of David Sylvian in a rock music annual. Based on its stylistic premise, the photo was taken during his time in Japan (in other words, he was wearing makeup). The photo is almost completely white – the background, the table that David is sitting at, his shirt, etc. He looks calm and serene, with his head slightly tilted forward and his arms outstretched holding (what looks like) a trout.

Unfortunately, the library where I borrowed the book from no longer exists. Furthermore, when the library finally closed, I was living out of London and may have missed the opportunity to obtain the book at a cheap price.

This image has always stayed with me but I have been unable to come across it, even with a Google search. Does anyone remember this photo? Does anyone have a copy they could post here or link to? I’d really love to own a JPEG (or alternative) of this.

Many thanks!

Oh, I forgot to mention that it may have been an outtake from the Bamboo Houses photo session.

That sounds like this photo:

The same shot was used to promote the Japan concert in Paris '82 - that would be an amazing poster to have!

Oh, yes!!! That's the one! Many thanks for that, karnsculpture!

Gosh, it's been nearly 25 years since my eyes graced this photo! It's amazing how your mind can 'modify' the finer details over time.

Now, who's got a JPEG? :D

Btw, the second link doesn't seem to be working...
