DAVID BAILEY'S STARDUST EXHIBITION LANDS IN MILAN
A wide variety of his works recount a cultural zeitgeist
Legendary photographer David Bailey is among the visionaries behind the Swinging London phenomenon in the Sixties, capturing its vibe through his shots of high-profile personalities the caliber of The Beatles, Mick Jagger, Jean Shrimpton, Andy Warhol and renowned East End gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Attractive and irreverent, Bailey himself was elevated to celebrity status while his vision is considered a major contribution to modern photography thanks to his easier and looser style and cropped angles. From the famous to the anonymous, over 300 works spanning Bailey's 50-plus-year career are now on display in Milan, inside the airy and white-washed PAC space which has been divided into a series of thematic rooms representing the various locations of his shoots - East Africa, Papua New Guinea, Australia and Delhi, among others.
