When the Builders met Bailey

12 May

The Mortar Boys were excited and proud to meet world famous photographer David Bailey this week. Looks like we might be contracted to use our scaffolding skills for his latest exhibition.

The eagerly anticipated retrospective  will be held from July 14 to August 11 at a soon-to-be-announced location.

We can say no more…

The Mortar Boys meet David Bailey

But Bailey said: “London’s East End is in my DNA and I’m thrilled to be able to return to my roots in Newham. The Olympics are helping to transform the borough and I’m delighted to be playing a special part in its transformation. Go East young man!”

“The pictures range, but the concentration is on the Sixties, Eighties and now,” Bailey told us. “Newham is the obvious place to do it – it’s where it all happened.”

    Mint! Did you see in the Sunday Times that Mr Bailey is selling his Primrose Hill house where all the parties happened!?
