Whenthe East End born legendary photographer David Bailey was six years old the Germans were bombing the country. David used to escape to the cinema down the road as it was cheaper than heating his parent’s house, and because he loved to watch the characters of Walt Disney. Unfortunately the Germans bombed the cinema in 1942 leading David to the conclusion that Hitler had killed his beloved Donald Duck. This brings us up to date with the now 73 year old artist/photographer and his latest exhibition which reflects on his childhood during the war, hence the title ‘Hitler Killed the Duck’.
This exhibition runs from Scream and features a unique insight to the world of David Bailey with bold colours and surreal subjects. Be inspired…
