David Bailey is almost as famous as the subjects he's photographed during an illustrious 50-plus-year career. The British photographer made a name for himself during his tenure at Vogue magazine, where his images of celebrities helped define the 60s. Now Bailey has selected over 250 photographs for a new exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery. SOUNDBITE: David Bailey, saying (English): "I wake up and think, how can I not get bored today? I'll do a little film, make a sculpture, do some pictures, have 200 cups of black coffee and hope to get a few things done." Famed for his photos on black and white film, Bailey insists that he was also at the vanguard of new technology. SOUNDBITE: David Bailey, saying (English): "Everyone thinks I'm against digital, in fact I was the first to have digital because I had the experimental ones from a camera company. So it's just another toy, it's another paintbrush, digital." "Bailey's Stardust" runs from February 1st to June 1st.
