Amazon.de

David Bailey's name is synonymous with the Swinging Sixties, when fashion photography became big business, and the man behind the camera could become as famous as the celebrities who posed for him. And Bailey was the most famous--the East End boy who became best friends with the Beatles and the Stones, the husband of actress Catherine Deneuve, and lover of model Jean Shrimpton--chronicling them all in a series of unmistakable, unforgettable shots. David Bailey: Birth of the Cool delves into the photographer's archive and reproduces some of his earliest work (the 1959 wedding of a neighbor's daughter was one of his first professional gigs), previously unpublished documentary film stills, and the spectacular images of quintessential '60s mannequins Shrimpton and Penelope Tree introducing mod fashion to Vogue magazine readers. The result is a treasure-trove of images from one of the most exciting periods in the 20th century, when the cult of youth, fame, and glamour was worshipped and--in this case--most beautifully recorded. --Amazon.co.uk

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 1. September 2007
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This exciting book combines portraits and fashion photography to show the revolution of casual coolness that David Bailey brought to both fields. Filled with classic poses of Jean Shrimpton, Penelope Tree, Catherine Deneuve, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones that you will remember, the book is strengthened by many images you have never seen before. Breaking the previous rules for portraits and fashion, Bailey takes us into a hip, exciting world that offers unlimited promise through "spontaneity of gesture."

David Bailey was the classic outsider, looking in. Born to a working class family in London's East End, no career could have been more unlikely. Being a rock musician was the most that young East Enders of that period could hope for. However, his background gave him a fresh perspective that brought originality and life to his work that we all enjoy. His career rose rapidly, being sought after by Vogue within a year of becoming a professional photographer. In fact, he was on contract to Vogue before meeting Jean Shrimpton, with whom he became so closely identified (both for their personal relationship and their work together).

Some of these innovations work better than others. For example, he loved to pose a group with each person tilting in a different plane and then to put the image on the diagonal. Those tend to work quite well. On the other hand, he also liked to cut off the tops of heads (like Alex Katz paintings), and those often make the portraits much less interesting than if you got the whole head. He loved grainy, black-and-white images. These can be a bit too grainy.

The essay by Martin Harrison is a helpful introduction to Bailey's work, and adds considerable value. I encourage you to read and study it in connection with the photographs.

I haven't bought it yet but I did drool over it in a store.Page after page of pant-worthy pics of the doe-eyed deity amongdolly-birds, Jean Shrimpton, plus a plethora of portraits of dozens of Swinging London notables. Amazing shots from the wedding of Reg Kray! It's pricey, but I'm definitely saving up. No sixties enthusiast should be without it.

This book is a must for anyone who remembers the fashions of the 60's or wants to learn what was in "Vogue" during this decade. The quality and the composition of the photographs are unrivaled. The very large book will be a wonderful addition to a collection, particularly fans of photography, professional or novice.

Classic Mod Iconography from the Swinging Sixties 4. November 2000

The essay by Martin Harrison is a helpful introduction to Bailey's work, and adds considerable value. I encourage you to read and study it in connection with the photographs.
The book contains scenes that Bailey shot of the East End, that heighten the contrast between his former life and his new one. You will also see his first professional work (a wedding) and his first published work (a Sunday Pictorial in 1960). Bailey rose to prominence very quickly, based both on his talent and his eye for the potential of then-unknown, 18-year-old model Jean Shrimpton, who was to become a fashion icon of the period.
Here are some of my favorite photographs in the book:
Jean Shrimpton (Town - 1963; Sunday Mirror - 1964; Queen - January 1964; Queen - February 12, 1964; Vogue - June 1965)
Catherine Deneuve (his later wife) (Brittany - 1966, Vogue - April 1, 1967)
Joy Weston (Sunday Pictorial - 1960)
Franco Zeffirelli (Vogue - 1961)
Scouts (London, 1960)
Sarah Miles (American Vogue - August 1, 1964)
Robert Shaw (Vogue - September 15, 1963)
Marianne Faithfull (September 1964)
Peter Ustinov (Vogue - December 1965)
Shirley MacLaine (Vogue - December 1965)
The Rolling Stones (September 1964)
Mick Jagger (Contact Sheet -- April 1968)
Sue Murray (Vogue - March 15, 1967 and September 1, 1967)
Raquel Welch (Goodbye Baby & Amen, June 1968)
Afer you have finished enjoying this exciting collection and insightful essay, I suggest that you ask yourself where unnecessary formalism is restraining progress in something you do. For example, some churchs still have such formal services that while many are reassured by the familiarity this provides, their hearts are not still touched by it. Having identified this stall, how can you break through to open the doors to informality that will be constructive? Asking people what they are missing from their experiences is a good place to start. Going back to my example of worship, perhaps worship is too much unlike daily life. How can we integrate the two so that we worship as we live?
Be cool!

Trip Back in Time 18. Januar 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If your'e looking for a book to take a trip back to the late 50's through the 60's this is a good way to get there. The fashion and ad shots of Jean Shrimpton and other models of that era are a kick. Anyone into nostalgia of those times will find this book interesting, David Bailey seemed to be ahead of his time in his style and his photos are thought provoking as well as great pieces of art. He had some great friends (male and female) that became his subjects. I wish there was a book #2 to follow--this book made me want to see more of his work!
very happy.: ) 23. September 2014

Fabulous book documenting an exciting period in fashion / photography focusing on the preeminent figure of the day. Wish it would have shown more from the 1962 vogue / manhattan editorial, but none the less..worth every penny. about the seller: book arrived way fast and was exactly as described. very happy :)
