Title 8 Minutes: Hirst & Bailey

Author Bailey, David

Signed By The Photographer

ISBN: 9783865218643

Condition: New

Format: Hardcover



Signed by the Photographer

The premise of this book couldn?t be simpler: 130 photographs of Damien Hirst taken by David Bailey during a single shoot lasting eight minutes. Each pose is spontaneous and determined not by Bailey but by Hirst, who mocks the camera with his tongue poked out, mouth open wide and hands pulling at his cheeks. These photos are humble and unrehearsed, and so continue the sprit of Bailey?s Democracy in which Bailey photographed a cross section of naked subjects, shunning issues of composition, lighting and digital manipulation. Renouncing text and even a title page, 8 Minutes resists formulaic over-designed coffee-table publications. Bailey?s roguish message: what you see is what you get.
