When you think of fashion photography, or even just photography, David Bailey will be one of the first names you think of.

At the National Portrait Gallery from Thursday 6 February- Sunday June 1 you can go and take a look at over 250 hand selected and curated images by the man himself. Definitely one not to miss.
