David Bailey, Queen at Live Aid, 1985

With a career spanning over half a century, David Bailey is considered one of the pioneers of contemporary photography. 

Bailey first rose to fame in the 1960s, making stars of a new generation of models including Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. Since then his work has never failed to impress and inspire critics and admirers alike, capturing iconic images of legends such as Andy Warhol, The Rolling Stones, the Kray twins, Mickey Rourke and Kate Moss.

Although perhaps best known for his portraiture, Bailey’s accolades are many, with his genres including still life, painting and sculpture.

This year we are delighted to offer bidders this iconic print of Queen back stage at Live Aid, Saturday 13 July 1985, a day when Freddie Mercury unashamedly stole the show.
