David Bailey is one of the most famous fashion photographers of the twentieth century, part of a new generation who revolutionized the medium in the 1960s. His name is synonymous with the excitement of London during the ''Swinging Sixties'', when he made stars out of a new generation of models such as Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. Bailey was one of the first photographers to become a celebrity in his own right, socializing with and photographing many musical and film icons from the era, including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Andy Warhol, and Catherine Deneuve. He has held contracts with British, American, and Italian Vogue and has contributed to numerous other major magazines and newspapers. Bailey's simple, direct style is accompanied by an intimacy with his subjects that reveals their personality and sexuality. Over his successful career Bailey has produced books and paintings, has directed commercials, documentaries, and feature films, and remains a high-profile figure in photography and filmmaking. This book delves into his vast archive and provides an engaging overview of his career, including some of his earliest, previously unpublished work along with his most iconic portraits from the ''Swinging Sixties''.
