The Chilterns is truly exceptional and its reception foyer reflects the endless exclusivity of this development. The entrance hall unfolds into an open-plan gallery displaying photographic prints by the iconic David Bailey. This collection is Bailey’s first and only private lobby gallery of his career, and unique to a development of this calibre in London.
Bailey rose to fame in the 1960s whilst working as a fashion photographer for British Vogue. He soon became one of the most prolific fashion and celebrity photographers of his time, capturing a myriad of famous faces, from Jean Shrimpton to Mick Jagger. Bailey has also artfully portrayed London’s multiple personalities through his work and it is for this reason that Galliard Homes picked Bailey to capture the spirit of Marylebone.
In addition, 44 specially commissioned, limited edition prints by Bailey of the Marylebone area and its local people have been made into a fascinating book. Each apartment owner will be gifted a copy along with a framed original print from The Marylebone Collection; giving each owner a rare piece of photography by a celebrated British icon.
“The best way to see a place is to photograph it.” David Bailey
