Format: Hardcover
This concise book follows the style of the other photography books in the Phaidon mini-series. it is not designed to be an encyclopedic, coffee table sized book of Bailey's works but succeeds in giving the reader a taste and overview of Bailey's style. It was enough to make me want to explore his work further without buying a huge tome.

One to flick through rather than study cover to cover. The older generation will remember David Bailey from the Olympus Trip TV adverts; the younger amongst us can just enjoy the art in his photography!

Another nice addition to my photographic library. A small and easy to keep book, I should probably have purchased a larger version.

David Bailey a photographer of my generation only he became famous and I didn't.
I found an interview with him interesting though I am not keen on people who laugh at their own jokes.
Still I wander off the point of this short story.
This little book is similar to another by him called Exposed. Both well produced books of mostly portraits, a lovely one of Jack Nicholson amongst others.
If you are into books like this do get it, everyone should have a book by such an iconic British photographer, one who annoyed the fashion photography establishment of the day by changing the way people took fashion photographs for ever.

It goes without saying that there are some great photographs in this book, but I got the feeling that the early career in the sixties for which David Bailey is always know was over looked in favour of the later part. Great photographs of his current wife are more prominent that his other love interests which is also a shame, but for a small book it is not a bad introduction and one well worth having from this series.

I'm a photography student so naturally i wanted a book featuring some of the best peices by David Bailey.
This is such a cute little book with many photographs its insightful and interesting to look through, however i do wish the book was bigger and had a little more of his more famous work in here. its great but you could probably hire a book from the uni library with more in!!
