You'd better not mess with Major Tom... by 

Maybe you’d guessed from the title, but David Bowie’s ‘Ashes to Ashes’ was a major [tom] influence on this shot. The video for the song was the most expensive in the world at that time – $250,000 – and featured some of the most extreme image manipulation ever seen.

Rather than the solarized pink of the ‘dozer procession’ scene, I opted for a colour infrared palette to recreate the look and feel I wanted.

“My mother said,
to get things done,
you’d better not mess with Major Tom”
