SIMPLE AND DIRECT

Best known for his fashion photography, David Bailey's latest exhibition, 'Now', is a striking collection of pictures that depict life and death via arrangements of flowers and skulls.
The exhibition is at Hamilton's Gallery in Mayfair.

"It sounds a bit poncey, but flowers are about life and beauty. Skulls are about death. Skulls are the ultimate sculptures - nature's sculptures. Flowers are a symbol of civilisation and represent man's imagination. Previously people had only grown things to eat. It was a great moment when people would grow things for their beauty and not their function. I've been doing these sorts of shots for 30 years. I do everything from painting to sculpture and always have done. I shoot these still lifes the same way I shoot people." - David Bailey
