David Bailey had lived in Primrose Hill and Camden for nearly 30 years when he decided to capture the shuttered cinemas, boarded railway arches, crumbling Victorian facades, dormant car parks and advertising hoardings before they disappeared from view entirely. In 1982, when NW1 was first published, it reflected an already vanishing landscape: viewed now, Bailey’s photographs are even more portentous and poignant.

“Put yourself in any one of the pictures of NW1 and you’re right there. Your ghosts can get to meet Bailey’s ghosts…. Bailey lived there, and loved it, and in the pictures, he’s saying what he thinks. It isn’t what it was; but it’s freighted with that, and it will be something again.” — Francis Hodgson

This elegant and newly designed edition is signed by the artist, hand- numbered and limited to 1,000 copies. It includes an image exclusive to the edition alongside an originally commissioned text by Francis Hodgson, former photography critic for the Financial Times.
