David Bailey On Warhol DVD reissued

by Modculture 1 December, 2009


Don't be fooled by the name. If you already own the Bailey On… DVD (released back in 2006), you will already own the forthcoming David Bailey On Warhol, which lands on 18th January 2010. If you don't own it? Well, it's certainly worth a closer look, even if it is a bit late for the Christmas list.

In the early 1970s, David Bailey broadened his horizons away from photography by making high-profile documentaries for ATV. His reputation allowed him unprecedented access to Andy Warhol and his followers, exploring his art work and film works, throwing in candid discussions revolving around sexuality, Warhol’s life at The Factory and his experience of being shot. It was initially banned for being 'offensive', a ban that was overturned soon after.

Also here as 'extras' are two further David Bailey documentaries, one on photographer Cecil Beaton and the other on Italian film director Luchino Visconti, along with a booklet containing the full transcripts (including deleted scenes) for Warhol. You can pre-order now at Amazon for a very cheap £4.98.
