David Bailey at the William Morris Gallery

Date Posted: 18/02/2013

A brand new exhibition of works by David Bailey will show at the William Morris Gallery in London from 23rd February to 26th May. East End Faces chronicles life in the 1960s across the East End of London.

British photographer David Bailey will be returning to the borough of his birth, for an exhibition offering a rare insight into the faces and characters synonymous with the decade that gave us the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

East End Faces complements Bailey’s recent East End exhibition that ran as part of the Create Festival in August last year.

East End Faces will include previously unseen pictures from the 1960s, featuring streetscapes, characters and scenes of east London life. The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to view the East End through the lens of a local icon.

Born in Leytonstone and raised in East Ham, Bailey is one of east London’s most famous sons and his iconic photographs immortalised 60s London. The exhibition has an introduction written by Sandy Nairne, director of the National Portrait Gallery.
