With Stardust, Tod's celebrates legendary British photographer David Bailey, one of the founding fathers of contemporary photography. A retrospective of over 300 images, displayed across a series of themed rooms and spanning five decades, highlight the work of one of the world's greatest image makers whose iconic portraits captured the key figures of the cultural Zeitgeist, including The Rolling Stones, Angelica Houston, Andy Warhol, Kate Moss and gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Bailey's early work defined and captured the Swinging London vibe in the Sixties, when he launched a new generation of models, including Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. Playing havoc with the stiff rules of his predecessors, Bailey channeled the energy of London's new informal street culture into his work, creating a new casual coolness. Drawing inspiration from modernism, he injected a sense of movement and immediacy into his work by using a very direct, cropped perspective. Although best known for his portraiture, his interests are varied, extending beyond photography to film, commercials, painting and sculpture.
