In 1965, portrait and fashion photographer David Bailey
released his groundbreaking book Box Of Pin-Ups
, securing him as the hip tastemaker for 1960s London cool. With Mick Jagger his best man at his wedding to Catherine Deneuve and also being the inspiration for the classic movie Blow-Up
. From the Swinging ’60s to the present day, Bailey has never stopped working and pushing the boundaries of his signature in-your-face portraiture
and is widely regarded as one of the great postwar photographers
This big book of Bailey is the culmination of an incredible career
, the result of two years’ worth of research into his personal archives
. Through penetrating pictures of the beautiful and the notorious, the idolized and the powerful, friends and family, writers, artists, and fellow photographers, Bailey presents a sweeping cultural history of the last 60 years
. Featured subjects include Andy Warhol
, Salvador Dalí
, Kate Moss
, Nelson Mandela
, Francis Bacon
, Zaha Hadid
, the Rolling Stones
, Jack Nicholson
, Brigitte Bardot
, Margaret Thatcher
, and hundreds more.
As his friend Damien Hirst
writes in the foreword: “He’s the master of his art and he’s created a mind-blowing visual language.” Additional text includes a three-part essay on Bailey’s portraiture by noted photography critic Francis Hodgson.
This Art Edition comes with a signed print of Andy Warhol
, taken when the artist was at the peak of his career as New York’s ultimate cutting-edge tastemaker. Without his customary shades, Andy is practically bursting out of the tight frame, clearly not used to being exposed in this way. Their relationship continued into the 1970s, with Bailey making a British TV documentary on this Pop Art
