This new title by David Bailey originates from two fashion shoots on location in Peru – the first in 1971 for Vogue , the latter in 1984 for Tatler. Having been struck by the natural beauty of the people and places on these fashion assignments, Bailey set out to document people around the world in their natural habitats.
Bailey’s Peru collects his photography from those visits, a mixture of landscape, fashion and portrait photography, showcasing Bailey’s immense and multi-faceted talents. In both colour and black and white, Bailey captures and celebrates the undeniable beauty of the land and its people.
Featuring an introduction by Grace Coddington, Creative Director for US Vogue, who accompanied Bailey on his first trip to Peru, an engaging essay by Jackie Higgins and text from Bailey himself.
David Bailey was born in 1938 in Leytonstone, East London. After working as fashion photographer John French’s assistant, he published his first portrait of Somerset Maugham for Today magazine in 1960 before meeting the model Jean Shrimpton whilst at Vogue. Bailey has exhibited worldwide, the first of his landmark exhibitions in 1971 at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Internationally renowned, Bailey has produced some of the most famous photographic portraits of the last five decades.
