Photographer: David Bailey
David Royston Bailey (born 2 January 1938) London based photographer that helped define “The Swingin Sixties” by shooting the fashion and celebrities of the day, most notably The Stones and The Beatles. Bailey in-turn became a celebrity himself and was the inspiration for the amoral photographer in Antonioni’s film “Blow-Up“. In 1964 Bailey released a box of prints called Box of Pin-Ups that included, along with prints of Andy Warhol, Terrance Stamp, The Stones, and The Beatles, a print of the infamous East End gangsters, the Kray Twins (see post below). Because of this one print a US version was never released nor a 2nd UK edition, (copies of Box of Pin-Ups sell for about $30,000 now). Bailey still works and shoots occaisionally today.
