David Bailey’s Stardust is an outstanding celebration of the work of one of the world’s greatest photographers. Shown to huge acclaim on an international tour, it is now in Edinburgh and provides a rich survey of Bailey’s achievement.
This event gives an exclusive opportunity to view this landmark show, the most extensive exhibition ever mounted by the National Galleries of Scotland. It features more than 300 photographs and material from Bailey’s own personal archive such as book and magazine covers.
Key works come from the seminal David Bailey’s Box of Pin-Ups of 1965 as well as wonderful later examples of his portraits from the world of fashion, ranging from designers Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfield to models Jean Shrimpton and Kate Moss.
The exhibition also showcases portraits of artists, painters, film directors, actors and fellow photographers including Salvador Dali, Bill Brandt, Johnny Depp and Damien Hirst.
This event has been organised by the Edinburgh Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
