David Bailey, arguably one of the best photographers of the Swinging Sixties, had an illustrious and stored career that saw him working with (and in one case, marrying) some of the most famous characters of the period. Known for his good looks ("Being handsome wasn't much of a burden. It worked for me")  as much as for his skill, Bailey shot the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, innumerable covers for Vogue (one of his four wives had been a model when he met her), and the infamous Kray Twin gangsters.

Bailey was also able to articulate the difficulties of being a photographer: "It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary - it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary."

This poster, for an Italian exhibition of Bailey's work, is lined and in excellent condition.
