A landmark exhibition of the work of David Bailey is to open at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in February 2014.
It will include a new portrait of Kate Moss, exhibited for the first time, together with previously unseen work including images from his 2012 travels to the Naga Hills in India.
Selected by the photographer, Bailey�s Stardust (6 February � 1 June 2014) will be one of the Gallery�s largest scale photography exhibitions, with over 250 portraits occupying most of its ground floor.
One of the world�s most distinguished and distinctive photographers, David Bailey has made an outstanding contribution to the visual arts, creating consistently imaginative and thought-provoking portraits. As well as including new work, this exhibition contains a wide variety of Bailey�s photographs from a career that has spanned more than half a century.
The portraits have been personally selected by Bailey from the subjects and groups that he has captured over the last five decades: actors, writers, musicians, politicians, filmmakers, models, artists and people encountered on his travels; many of them famous, some unknown, all of them engaging and memorable. Bailey will be making new silver gelatin prints of his black-and-white portraits especially for the exhibition.
Entry will be £16 for a full price adult with Giftaid, and £14.50 without. Senior and student concessions are also available.
