'Bailey’s East End' publication consists of three beautifully presented hardcover books housed in a slipcase. Together the three volumes contain 620 photographs of the East End of London, each volume a collection of images taken by Bailey during a different decade, from the 60s up until now.

As a triptych these three volumes represent the changing face of the East End through the lens of one of the world’s greatest photographers. 

Accompanied by David Bailey's own words about life in the East End as a child, as well as pictures of his mother from the 50s Bailey’s East End provides a glimpse into the a vanished world.
