Cecil Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook

Culture Watch

As one of the 20th century’s most important photographers, Cecil Beaton helped invent the cult of the celebrity image while pushing the boundaries of his art form. In the course of his decades-long career as a photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, as well as a British war correspondent, Cecil Beaton documented lives both famous and quotidian. Composed of his own prints and clippings from magazines, newspapers, and playbills, the pages of this stunning book are an instructive record of his creative process.
