The Beatles, Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan are among some of the A-list celebrities British photographer David Bailey has captured on film. Along with contemporaries Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy, he shot and helped mould the Swinging London of the Sixties, and conquered the fashion world via Vogue, creating one of the first supermodels in the form of ex-girlfriend Jean Shrimpton. Born and raised in East End, East London, Bailey returns to his roots this month with his new exhibition 'East End' at Compressor House, London Royal Docks just one mile from where he grew up in Newham. The exhibition, produced by Create to coincide with the Olympics, features a selection of photographs Bailey took in the East End of London since the last 50 years. Crane.tv meets one of the world's most famous photographer at the space, where he tells us about his parents, his thoughts on political correctness and why he doesn't like being photographed. www.david-bailey.co.uk
