Cecil Beaton: Portraits and Profiles

£14.99

Available in Stock

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.
