Cecil Beaton (1904-1980)

The photography of Cecil Beaton is one of the most valuable and informative record of the lives of the High Society in the twenties and thirties. Educated at Camberidge in art and history, he left early without completing his degree. However who would care about failing their degree when less than two years later employment by Vogue would be on the cards, your photography and design work regularly featured. You will know his work, even if you are unaware of it. The 20's and 30's were my favourite era in terms of style and fashion, Cecil Beaton was blessed to be surrounded by such beauty that he was free to capture in abundence.
