David Bailey is one of the most influential and renowned photographers having shot some of the most iconic portraits of the last five decades including the Queen Elizabeth II of England, the Beatles, Jeff Koons, Joseph Beuys, Kate Moss, Sheik Saud Al Thani, David Bowie, Jude Law, Paloma Picasso and Pharrell Williams, amongst others. In the 1960’s Bailey began collaborating with British Vogue, where his work brought a new style of photography moving away from the aesthetics of rigid portraiture and fashion photography of the previous decades. Bailey was able to capture the raw beauty of his models with intensity, dynamism and a freshness that responded to the social and cultural changes of the time.

Bailey's career was a particularly important part of Swinging London, where he contributed to the new social and cultural paradigm of this movement, seen in his infamous Box of Pin-Ups book (1964). His creative impact as well as his influential personality inspired the film director Michelangelo Antonioni, who drew on his life to create Thomas, the protagonist of the film Blow-up (1966).

Bailey, who has over thirty published books and who has exhibited both in solo and group shows, has been given the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and in 2016 was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Center of Photography in New York. His work is in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery, London and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, amongst other collections both private and public.
