Previously unseen photographs of music legend David Bowie, who died of cancer in January, are now on display at the Mr. MusicHead Gallery in Hollywood.

The exhibition, called "Bowie Unseen," includes 20 images by celebrity photographer Markus Klinko, KABC-TV reported. It includes photos taken in 2001 during the same session that produced the cover shot for Bowie's 2002 album "Heathen."

"It was a 9 to 5 shoot," Klinko said. "We got so much done and, you know, I will never forget this session."

Klinko described working with Bowie as "one of the best experiences because he knows exactly what he wants," The Press Association reported.

"The reason we have so many shots that are unseen is because once we did the cover for Heathen – which took several hours and which he had very precisely mapped out in his head what he wanted – he then turned very playful and allowed me to have fun," Klinko said. "Some of the images I cherish the most are when there’s this element of improvisation."

The exhibition runs until June 15 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research.

Klinko also described the photo shoot in an article published in GQ in February.

"He is one of the most photogenic stars ever, and almost every single shot looked incredible," Klinko wrote. "Bowie knew exactly what poses and expressions to do in order to portray the character we discussed. He was very carefree and fun to shoot."

He also described how he later created images of Bowie with wild wolves. The opportunity came about while Bowie was on tour to promote his album, and GQ contacted Klinko to provide a photo of Bowie for its "Men of the Year" cover.

"Since Bowie was busy with the tour and was not available for a shoot within the deadline for the magazine, a creative solution had to be found," Klinko wrote. "I called up to David and asked him if he would trust me with creating a series of complex photocompositions, using a body double and several wild wolves. He immediately loved that idea, and said that I had carte blanche."
