Those lips


I've always loved the photos of David Bailey, especially those of the 60's and Swinging London like these ones of Catherine Denevue and Mick Jagger - he actually looks good here!!


One of my favourite films ever - Blow up by Michaelangelo Antonioni is actually largely based on Bailey. Here played by David Hemmings. Antonioni made a lot of other great movies like Zabriskie point. I absolutely love the desert scene with lovers rolling around in the sand which I think The Smashing Pumpkins copied for their 'Today' video.
