This SUMO-sized retrospective celebrates one of the world’s most influential photographers and the culmination of two years researching his archives. Gathering portraits from the 1950s to the 2010s, we discover some 300 subjects as varied as Nelson Mandela, the Beatles, the Queen, Salvador Dalí, Bill Gates, and Yves Saint Laurent, all printed big and bold, in Bailey’s signature style.
This Art Edition comes with a signed print of Jean Shrimpton, Bailey’s muse and lover. To this day one of the most recognizable faces of 1960s Swinging London, she inevitably featured in Bailey’s game-changing Box Of Pin-Ups. “She was magic. In a way she was the cheapest model in the world—you only needed to shoot half a roll of film and then you had it,” said Bailey.
Art Edition (No. 76–150), with the print Jean Shrimpton, 1965. The book and print are both numbered and signed by David Bailey, accompanied by a bookstand designed by Marc Newson and a set of four book jackets featuring John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Jean Shrimpton, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol.
