★★★★★ The Scotsman
Bailey's Stardust is an outstanding celebration of the work of one of the world's greatest photographers. Shown to huge acclaim on an international tour, it now arrives in Edinburgh and provides a rich survey of David Bailey's achievement. He has, since the early 1960s, been at the forefront of the intersecting arenas of photography, fashion, portraiture, and reportage.
Bailey's extraordinary exhibition demonstrates the breadth of his work, encompassing iconic portraits, defining images of London's East End, and global photography. The exhibition has been curated by Bailey and its installation in Scotland is being directed by him. It is arranged thematically and the majority of the portraits on show have been newly printed.
