David Bowie is one of the most recognisable figures in pop culture, with even casual fans being able to bring to mind at least a couple of his iconic looks. As one of the most photographed men in music, it’s fascinating then to look back at Bowie before the fame in a series of photos taken when he was just 20-years old, and only recently unearthed.

The shots were taken by photographer Gerald Fearnley shortly after David changed his last name from Jones to Bowie to remove himself from the shadow of Monkees star Davey Jones, The Daily Beast reports, and are outtakes from the studio session that also produced the cover of Bowie’s self-titled ’67 debut LP.

50 years on, the full collection of photos will be published in a new book entitled Bowie Unseen: Portraits of an Artist as a Young Man, but you can catch a glimpse of some of the freshly-released images below.
