David Bailey in Conversation with Tim Marlow
Friday, 13 July 2012 from 19:00 to 20:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Please arrive early for registration at 18:30
The London Borough of Newham and Theatre Royal are delighted to present an evening with the world renowned photographer, David Bailey. Tim Marlow, Director of Exhibitions at the White Cube Gallery, will talk to David Bailey about life in the East End, the images which define it and his upcoming exhibition in the Royal Docks.
Bailey is considered one of the driving forces behind contemporary photography, David Bailey is credited with photographing some of the most powerful images of the last four decades. He first rose to fame making stars of a new generation of models including Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. Since then his work has never failed to impress and inspire critics and admirers alike, capturing iconic images of legends such as The Rolling Stones, Kray twins, Mickey Rourke and Kate Moss.
Although perhaps best known for his portraiture, Bailey's accolades are many, with his genres including still life, painting and sculpture.
“I've always tried to do pictures that don't date. I always go for simplicity.”
The Ideas Olympiad is a free series of events, sponsored by the London Borough of Newham, which will bring high profile and interesting speakers to the borough throughout the summer to talk to residents about their ideas and vision.
Theatre Royal Stratford East is an award winning producing theatre in the heart of East London. The theatre first opened in 1884, and has enjoyed a rich and varied history. In 1992, the beautiful Victorian-era auditorium was restored; it seats up to 460 people on three levels with all seats having a good view of the stage. The refurbishment project enabled the theatre to re-open in the autumn of 2001 and it has gone from strength to strength ever since.
