BAILEY ‘S STARDUST

A SPRINKLE OF STARDUST’ AT THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

 

A metaphorical journey into the 60s’ ‘Swinging London‘ and beyond: this is the main essence of Bailey ‘s Stardust, which opened last February at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Nearly three hundred portraits selected by David Bailey and reproduced in black and white on the occasion of the exhibition.

 

Actors, fashion icons, models, designers, artists, filmmakers in silver gelatin print with a distinctive and flamboyant vintage touch, (Mike Jagger, Kate Moss, Damon Albarn and Francis Bacon).

 

The main theme of the exhibition is ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust’, the endless life and death’s dualism. Bailey ‘s Stardust epitomises the sparkling life of the showbiz and has been drawing a wide audience made up of neophytes, professional photographers and fashion lovers. Peculiar.
