Introduction by Toomas Volkmann.
Photographer, writer, painter, costume and set designer Cecil Beaton was a dazzling chronicler and an arbiter of his time. From the Bright Young Things to the front lines of war to the international belle monde and the pages of Vogue to being the Queen’s official photographer, Beaton embodied the cultural and political changes of the twentieth century. Dynamic and lyrical, “Love, Cecil” is an examination of Beaton’s singular sense of the visual, which dictated a style that set standards of creativity that continue to resonate and inspire today.
