David Bailey: Birth of the Cool

type
  • Book

Austin Powers’ snaggletoothed fashion photog is no match for David Bailey. Compadre of Mick Jagger, onetime husband of Catherine Deneuve, and former live-in of Jean Shrimpton, David Bailey was part of the ’60s jet set he captured so intimately on film. This stunning collection of portraits contains more than a few now-classic images: the Rolling Stones’ minimalist Out of Their Heads album cover, a blue boa’d Shirley MacLaine in Vogue. But the most riveting frames are the ones that caught luminaries at their most unguarded, such as a young Paul McCartney staring pensively at his mirrored reflection. Birth of the Cool is the work of an insider with real insight.
