This year Heni Publishing not only have reprinted (only 100 copies) of David Bailey’s sold out NW1 but have also exhibited for the first time some of the photographs from the book that reflect the decay of the now super-cool super-hype London area where he lived for about 30 years. The iconic photographer, well known for shooting and being part of the 1960s Swinging London cultural scene, published NW1 in 1982 and it has been quite a mission to get a hold of a copy since then.
