Double Exposure: David Bailey & Mary McCartney

Double Exposure: David Bailey & Mary McCartney

The exhibition brings David Bailey and Mary McCartney, two era-defining British photographers, into dialogue for the first time. Curated by Brandei Estes, this striking series of works spans the 1960s to the present day – exploring a shared aesthetic of reinvention, play and the art of portraiture itself.

For over half a century, David Bailey has captured the great and the glamourous. His highly charged images are celebrated worldwide for their signature joyfulness and disarming connection to his subjects – even when working with the most photographed faces of our time.

Similarly, Mary McCartney’s insightful gaze reveals enigmatic and evocative portraits of celebrity icons, from Kate Moss to Harry Styles. Like Bailey, there’s a dash of the theatrical and performative in her photographs. But set alongside everyday moments – a ballet dancer ‘off pointe’ or a woman hailing a taxi – she conjures the sense that anything, or anyone, could be a subject.
