The National Portrait Gallery has unveiled this landmark exhibition dedicated to the work of David Bailey. Best-known for his imaginative and thought provoking images, the renowned photographer self-selected some 300 works that span more than half a century. Lining the gallery walls are some of the biggest names from the 20th and 21st centuries like Nelson Mandela, Yoko Ono, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Alexander McQueen, Kate Moss and Andy Warhol. The thematically structured exhibition presents iconic images alongside lesser known works throughout contrasting rooms such as the glamorous and the impoverished, or the famous and the notorious. Some rooms are devoted to Bailey’s travels in Australia, Delhi and the Naga Hills, while others to fashion and art icons. For those headed to London for fashion week, be sure to check out this must-see exhibition. –Sarah Ryan Hecht
