Over a career spanning more than half a century, renowned British photographer David Bailey CBE has shot everyone, from the Queen of England on her 88th birthday to Australian aboriginals and Indian sadhus; London’s Eastenders to icons of fashion, music, film, and art. Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson, he got his start in 1959, becoming a photographer for British Vogue the following year. With a stripped-down, direct style, he reveals the beauty and heart of all of his subjects. In his words: “The pictures I take are simple and direct and about the person I’m photographing and not about me. I spend more time talking to the person than I do taking pictures.” Bailey’s black-and-white and color portraits and fashion shoots broke down barriers of class and race with their youthful, punk aesthetic, equalizing everyone who appears before his lens.
