‘My fashion pictures are documents just as much as my boat people or my pictures for Band-Aid of Sudan’ David Bailey

‘Eric Swayne sang in Parisian nightclubs and married his first wife, but also gained a useful training as a barista whilst managing a coffee house. This meant that when he returned to London around 1960, he landed a job managing one of London’s trendy new Soho coffee shops. It was here that he met Bailey and they quickly became friends. Charismatic, good looking and great fun, my dad quickly became a central part of London’s counter-culture; just at the time when social divides were blurring and Bailey, Donovan and Duffy were redefining the conventions and aesthetics of photography. Vogue photographer Peter Rand gave him a nudge and suggested that he should pick up a camera and start taking pictures himself. So, aged 29 and with no professional training, he watched his friends Bailey and Duffy on shoots and taught himself, hanging out with them at the Vogue studios on the top floor of Vogue House in Hanover Square; watching and learning.’ Tom Swayne and Grant Scott for the United Nations of Photographers
