Press Release

Bailey: For Real - Daniel Blau London

Opening: May 15, 6-8pm / Exhibition: May 16 - June 28, 2014

Artist David Bailey is best known for his portraits of the trendsetting faces commonly seen in the pages of Vogue and, most recently, in Bailey’s Stardust at the National Portrait Gallery. In contrast to these iconic images, Bailey: For Real will present a collection of his photographs of the everyday, including captivating portraits of anonymous figures in Delhi and stark images of London’s East End. When displayed together in our exhibition these works constitute a relatively unexplored yet equally intriguing component of Bailey’s artistic oeuvre.

Akin to the prints in our Bailey:Uncharted exhibition at Paris Photo LA, Bailey has similarly taken his hand to these works, often tearing them and leaving behind a ragged and frayed edge. Bailey’s tearing emphasises the tactile nature of his photographs and renders each piece entirely unique.
