In 1966, Vogue magazine celebrated its golden anniversary. At the height of the swinging sixties, London was the centre of the creative world, across a multitude of industries. Therefore the natural choice to shoot the cover of a special 50th Anniversary issue was an English fashion and portrait photographer, born in the post-war East End - David Bailey - who owes much of his subsequent success to the then Vogue Art Director John Parsons.
