David Bailey

Looking back. We were all part of it. Vanity. We kept looking into store windows to check ourselves out. We weren’t trying on new clothes. We were trying on new looks. David Bailey photographed many of those people who made up the privileged vanes. (As opposed to my friends and I who were middle-class vanes.)  It was fun. But I wonder how many of those people survived that adulation. It killed a lot of them. John Lennon was one of the few who wrote and talked about it. But its like a fly in a spider web. No matter how much you try you never seem to get yourself out of it.
