David Bailey

A couple of years ago, my brother gave me Ready Steady Go! for my birthday. I finally got around to reading it last winter and would recommend it to anyone with a vague interest in what was happening in London in the 60s.
I could really devote another post to the book, but for now I'd really just like to talk about David Bailey. Actually, I'd just like to share a couple of his portraits that I really love.

The Mick Jagger and Catherine Deneuve have always been two of my favorite portraits, so it was interesting to learn that Bailey'd shot them. The Marianne Faithful is from 1999, and I think it's rather amazing.
