The connective thread throughout the exhibit and tome is Bailey's ability to portray a person's essence--without the use of elaborate costumes, props or high-concept staging. He's the glossy lensman with a documentarian's touch. --Jason Chen"Departures" (05/01/2014)

The choice of pictures is also disappointing, considering the enormous catalogue he has to choose from. The decision to include all the prints from "A Box of Pin-Ups" is interesting inasmuch as most people won't have ever seen the original publication (now selling for sums north of £20,000 in good condition) but it would have been a great opportunity to print some more of the rarely seen images - for instance Jean Shrimpton from the YSL Vogue shoot in 1971, which appears in the book "Yves Saint Laurent - Images of Design" and ditto Penelope Tree. Some of the more experimental shots of Marie Helvin he did using prints from polaroid film would have been a good idea too. I've seen other photographs he did for the book NW1, using a 5x4 Linhoff, at an exhibition at the Olympus centre in London which were beautifully printed but haven't been seen since. As it is the exhibition and book are a testament to Bailey's lifelong love affair with photography and the fact that he is one of the great photographers, both artistically and technically.Read more ›
I am surprised that Mr.Bailey didn't have a say in this important detail of a photographic book, maybe he did or maybe he didn't..?
