DAVID BAILEY

El post de hoy es un homenaje a uno de mis fotógrafos preferidos, por no decir el preferido. Un personaje que me ha fascinado siempre y por el que he visto la película de Michelangelo Antonioni  BLOW-UP, inspirada en la vida de nuestro protagonista,  varias veces.
Copio las declaraciones que nuestro fotógrafo hizo al Telegraph, en las que declara sorprendente-mente que la moda es la cosa mas aburrida de el mundo, habla sobre lo poco atraído y fascinado  que está y estuvo de y en ese mundo  y opina sobre algunos de sus personajes. 
He leído todo esto en un interesante pero corto artículo en la revista ELLE U.K. de ayer día 12, y como veis os enlazo al artículo original de el FASHION TELEGRAPH y os invito a leer otro más en el que se habla de su trabajo (no dejes de hacer click en "trabajo") entre otras cosas y donde el fotógrafo afirma  que Londres es para el, y yo subscribo , la mejor ciudad de la tierra...

David Bailey: fashion still 'boring'
Bite, hand, feeds, don’t, etc.—such maxims apply only to mere mortals, not to legends, apparently. David Baileyfashion’s most beloved curmudgeon, said he thinks the industry is ‘the most boring thing in the world’.

‘I was never that interested in fashion,’ Bailey told the Telegraph of his early years as a fashion photogapher. ‘It was the only way that a photographer in those days could earn a living creatively.’
The creator of some of the most memorable images in fashion history did say he has ‘enormous respect’ for fellow icons Grace Coddington and Karl Lagerfeld, and that Gianni Versace was ‘one of the most intelligent men I’ve spent time with.’
(He also reserves a special admiration for Victoria Beckham: ‘I think she looks very smart and she dresses a lot better than lots of people like that,’ he said. ‘I’m not mad about the shoes she wears. They look like they hurt a bit—if you were told you had to wear those for the rest of your life you’d burst out crying.’)
Bailey is far from alone in his disdain for the fashion industry. As Photographer’s Gallery founder Sue Davies OBE explained in the current issue of Twin, Bailey and his ‘60s fashion photography peers ‘all wanted to be artists,’ rather than work for magazines.
When Davies opened the Gallery, ‘David Bailey wanted a show, but he didn’t want to put any of his fashion stuff in. He wanted to do all his East End pictures. I let him do it but I was a bit disheartened,’ she said. ‘It was no use trying to tell them that actually, other people could do that better.’
Incidentally, some of those photographs probably appear in Bailey's new exhibition. Called David Bailey’s East End, it’s on display until 5 August at Compressor House, Royal Docks, Dockside Road, Newham, London E16 2QD.
