Bailey's StardustThis spring/summer the National Portrait Gallery hosts a major exhibition of images personally selected by the British photographer David Bailey himself. Bailey's Stardust will feature over 250 portraits, spanning a 50-year career including an unseen image of an inhabitant of the Naga Hills and a recent portrait of Kate Moss. Curated thematically in rooms devoted to travel, pop iconography, celebrity and more, the exhibition will be the biggest ever retrospective of the legendary photographer's work.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
