David Bowie was a creative force to be reckoned with throughout the '70s and '80s, and just recently released a new album, Blackstar. But unbenknownst to many of us, he was in the middle of fighting a battle with cancer, and with a heavy heart, we announce that he lost the fight, dying at 69 years old.
His creative influence can't be understated, and so it's no surprise that the creative community has come out in droves to celebrate his life. We've assembled a collection of some of those photos here. Rest in peace, Ziggy Stardust.
