    Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) became famous for his society portraits in the 1920s and went on to photograph people in all walks of life - from royalty to rock stars. This volume presents more than 120 of his portraits, accompanied by the photographer's written observations or reflections on his sitters. His thoughts are often wicked - John Betjeman is described as 'an Edwardian vaudeville tramp' - but always compelling as notes from Beaton's vast experience of the worlds of society, art, literature and performance.
