The Lady is a Tramp, David Bailey
Portraits of Catherine Bailey
Text by Fay Weldon
From the legendary David Bailey comes this collection of photographs - a tribute to his wife, the model Catherine Bailey. Divided into five sections - nudes, fashion, pregnancy, children and beauty - these images capture her in different incarnations, as wife, mother, lover, seductress...and as tramp. The text is provided by Fay Weldon, a close friend of both David and Catherine Bailey. She explores the relationship between the photographer and his wife, and wider themes such as the interaction of commerce and art, the status of photography as a real art-form and the different ways men and women see the world.
