David Bailey

In the Daily Telegraph on Saturday 30th January David Bailey was interviewed by Celia Walden - for reasons of copyright I can't reproduce the piece here. So you'll have to be happy with this link:

Sorry!

There will be a selling exhibition of Bailey's work at Bonhams, New Bond Street, London from 7th March to 7th April titled "Pure Sixties, Purte Bailey". Print prices range from £10,000 to £75,000.

I will leave you with a quote from the interview regarding the British attitude to photography as an art. Bailey says, "has a funny attitude to photography. Perhaps they have the illusion that a camera takes a picture, not a photographer". I've always said that it's the person behind the camera that makes a picture. It's a bit like saying a kitchen creates a fine meal!
