David Bailey : Tears and Tears
by David Bailey


Overview - Determining the perfect exposure time for a photographic print in a traditional darkroom can be a time-consuming and tedious process, and the irreverent David Bailey (born 1938) has never had much patience for it. Normally a photographer makes a number of test strips, each showing different exposure times; but Bailey has always just intuitively torn off strips of the unexposed paper to find the desired result: -I would usually have it in the bag after three tears.- Over the decades, Bailey has kept his -test tears,- re-fixing and washing them to preserve the unpredictable and unique qualities of these -accidents.- This book contains the best of Bailey's tears, which transform some of his most famous motifs into fascinating abstract pictures through their torn edges and myriad tones.  Read more...
