Arty-Fact: Markus, who photographed David Bowie a number of times, describes him as an ideal subject – and that wasn't just because of the musician's fashion-forward cheek bones. In 2002, when Bowie was unable to schedule a shoot for GQ's "Man of the Year" award, it was Klinko he trusted to create composite images of him holding a pack of wild wolves at bay. In 2013, based on a desire Markus had expressed years earlier to direct, David tapped him to helm the video for "Valentine's Day", the fourth single from his album "The Next Day". However, Markus points out that any improvisation he did on set was always based on a well-established idea. Before their first shoot, for the artwork of "Heathen", he and David sat together listening to rough mixes of the album prior to entering the studio, just to make sure they were on the same page.
