Here’s a DVD that’s worth picking up when it drops next month, the reissuing of David Bailey on Warhol. 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.
