If You Do One OTHER Thing In London This Week…

Our Tuesday slot in which we point you in the direction of other great happenings and events in our great city. A new exhibition, a gig, a museum, a pop-up-shop – the best of London within a few minutes of a London Walks walking tour.

David Bailey’s career as a portrait photographer is unrivalled. For 50 years and more he has shot the great and the good (and the downright villainous) in his own bold, inimitable style. He’s almost a byword for the business of photography in our country, to the extent that it’s sometimes easy to forget the sheer scope of his work – and how lucky we are to have him chronicle our age.

This exhibition (Bailey said on TV that he hates the word “retrospective”) is a great opportunity to stand back and admire the man’s work away from his personal legend.

Bailey’s Stardust runs to 1st June 2014.
