David Bailey has a new show at The National Portrait Gallery in London, opening this February. One of my favourite portrait photographers on earth, exhibiting at one of my favourite places on earth: Tickets will be booked. Apart from his obvious and well documented visual talent, I’ve always liked Bailey’s cheeky sense of barrow boy humour. Once asked in a Guardian newspaper interview if photography was easy, he replied along the lines of ” Any monkey can make a good photograph; difference is, I can make two.” Nuff said.
