David Bailey

Today I ventured into the city with my dear friend Kate to see 'David Bailey: Four Beats to the Bar and No Cheating'.  There is nothing like seeing someone you admire talk about how they find their inspiration and subsequently, the motivation to produce beautiful work.  Bailey is part of a special group of fashion photographers who seek to capture the simple essence of their subject and his photographs are raw, honest and most importantly, timeless.  The above images are from his 'Box of Pin-Ups' collection, released during the mid-60s and although they were taken almost 50 years ago, they remain some of the most famous portraits of our time.  Check out the acmi website for showing times...x
