Bailey and the Shrimp

Jean Shrimpton photographed by David Bailey in New York, 1962.

Kennedy Fraser on the union of photographer Bailey and model Shrimpton: 'the image that they have wrought lies deep within each follower of fashion. Miss Shrimpton's pedigree is in her bright blue eyes, her marvelously well-turned head, and her childish, vulnerable limbs. And Mr. Bailey sees that she never betrays her beauty [...] she is unapproachable in her diffidence and ageless in her innocence' (The Fashionable Mind 1981: 40).
