Phaidon Photographers David Bailey Photography Book

David Bailey is one of the most famous fashion photographers of the twentieth century, part of a new generation who revolutionised the medium in the 1960s and made stars of models such as Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. He was among the first photographers to become a celebrity in his own right, socialising with and photographing many of the cultural icons of the period, such as Catherine Deneuve, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Caine and Andy Warhol. 

Over the course of his successful career Bailey has produced books, paintings, commercials, documentaries and feature films. This book delves into the photographer's archive and provides an engaging overview of his career, including early and previously unpublished work alongside his iconic portraits from the 'Swinging Sixties'.
