Sidmouth - the Hall of Einar - photograph (c) David Bailey (not the)

My favourite photographer wasn’t actually a photographer. He took fewer photographs in his lifetime than I can put on a single memory card in my camera. He was given a fixed lens camera by his wife and only ever used that one camera and lens. His photography was often simply a way of visual note-taking.

Here are some examples of his photography:
