Pretty much anyone who has ever been anyone has been photographed by David Bailey. In the '60s particularly, he photographed all the biggest names. And he did it with style. While, what it is about that style exactly that makes it so amazing, is oftentimes difficult to pinpoint, there is no mistaking a David Bailey photograph when you see it. It just oozes "cool." It just oozes "fashion." Which is probably why Vogue hired him in 1960 as a fashion photographer. Bailey continues to photograph the beautiful and well-known and has even ventured out of the world of photography to explore other mediums of art such as writing, directing, and producing. Still, his heyday was definitely when being cool was effortless. Even if you weren't around at the time, you can look at any of the subjects in his photos and just know what the swingin' '60s were all about.
