Three volume set of David Bailey's photographs of East London from the 1960s to the present day.
Bailey's East End documents the changing face of East London over the last fifty years. With over six hundred black and white and colour photographs Bailey illuminates the streets, people and green spaces of East London. Born in Leytonstone in 1938, Bailey first had the idea of a book about the East End in the 1980s when he photographed the Dockland areas of Silvertown and Canning Town, documenting the closure of the London Docks. The photographs included in the book are accompanied by text written by Bailey describing his memories of growing up in East London, his experiences in the area as it began to develop and stories of his time photographing there.
