John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection
David Bailey is a fashion and portrait photographer who, along with Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy, helped to create the image of “Swinging London” during the 1960s. Per Wikipedia, “they were the first real celebrity photographers.” David Hemmings is said to have modeled his character in Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up (1966) on Bailey. Beaton by Bailey documents a photo shoot of Beaton by Bailey (thus the title). Itwas directed by William Verity in 1971.
