David Bailey Made the Sixties Swing

 
British photographer and cultural icon David Bailey took pictures of the rich and famous, the mod and trendy, the underworld, and a dizzying variety of fashion and portrait subjects throughout his long career. Married to models and movie stars, he's lived a fascinating life and shot culturally-defining photos of everyone from Michael Caine and the Beatles to Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger. He modestly claims, "I just do what I see. You can't photograph somebody's soul." But he also was quoted as saying, "It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.” This video interview of Bailey was made in 2010, part of his "Pure Sixties. Pure Bailey." retrospective gallery show for Bonhams, London.
