Iconic 1960s Model Jean Shrimpton in New York by David Bailey (1962)

Jean Shrimpton’s (1942) was a fashion model and icon of Swinging London. Her  career rose to prominence through her work with photographer David Bailey.

Of Jean Shrimpton, Bailey said:

She was magic and the camera loved her too. In a way she was the cheapest model in the world – you only needed to shoot half a roll of film and then you had it. She had the knack of having her hand in the right place, she knew where the light was, she was just a natural.

Shrimpton’s first photo session with Bailey was in 1960 (either for Condé Nast’s Brides on 7 December 1960 or for British Vogue). She started to become known in the modelling world around the time she was working with Bailey.

Shrimpton has stated she owed Bailey her career, and he is often credited for discovering her and being influential in her career.

In turn, she was Bailey’s muse, and his photographs of her helped him rise to prominence in his early career.
