Bailey's Democracy, Hardback

Bailey's Democracy Hardback


Recently, David Bailey turned his lens away from the glitterati and decided instead to focus on ordinary people - with startling results.

Over a period of three years, people visiting David Bailey's studio were asked if they would agree to be photographed naked.

None refused, and none was rejected. The results, presented here in one large-format volume, combine to form an all-inclusive, searingly honest portrait of humankind.

Desmond Morris contributes an introduction.
