'David Bailey / Archive One tells for the first time the full story of David Bailey's life and work from 1957 to 1969. Beginning with his early days in London's East End, it follows his progress through his first photographic experiences as an assistant to John French; his early years with Vogue; his close relationship with the stars of the music scene - which would produce those pictures of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that remain forever part of the iconography of the Swinging Sixties - and his friendships and love affairs with some of the period's most beautiful women - among them the models Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree and the actress Catherine Deneuve.

Martin Harrison has brought together here not only Bailey's most famous photographs, but also - through his long and intensive investigation of Bailey's archives - a raft of other images which show and unknown side to the man: pictures of Bailey's East End, as well as private and previously unpublished documentary photography.'
