Never before seen photographs by David Bailey will go on show in a new exhibition dedicated to his lengthy career behind the lens.
The gallery's director Sandy Nairne said: "Bailey's Stardust is a very special event. It offers an exceptional opportunity to enjoy the widest range of the mercurial portraits created by David Bailey, one of the world's greatest image-makers."
Bailey, who grew up in the East End of London, made his name in the 1960s as one of a group of young photographers including Terence Donovan who documented the era in the capital and rubbed shoulders with stars from the arts and fashion worlds.
His relationship with model Jean Shrimpton recently inspired a television drama, We'll Take Manhattan, with Aneurin Barnard playing Bailey and former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan playing Shrimpton.
