Since watching the BBC show called “We’ll take Manhattan” I became obsessed at finding this illusive books of David Bailey’s photographs taken in New York in 1962.
The photographs are stunning! I was desperately spending all summer long enquiring any book shop I could find for this book. And finally amazon saved my life, I went to collect it today, so happy! I wanted to share some of my favourites shoots…
The pictures are so modern, and bearing in mind this is in 1962! Jean Shrimpton looks so elegant and effortless… I love that the bear keeps popping up in the photos too. So added my bear to book, and apparently it’s a New York teddy bear too… so it fits well.
Underneath is the reference if you want to find it.
David Bailey, NY JS DB 62, Steidl
