David Bailey on his life in pictures

Britain’s most acclaimed portrait photographer is a craftsman who can force a rare laugh out of the Queen, and his photos defined London’s swinging sixties.

Over almost seven decades,  David Bailey has photographed everyone from the Rolling Stones to Nelson Mandela and Kate Moss.

Controversially, he even made East End gangsters, the Kray brothers, look cool.

Now, a so-called “sumo-sized” book is being published that gathers together his most famous works from the 1950s to the present day.

We went to talk to him in his London studio about his life in pictures.
