British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Huxley-Parlour has launched an exhibition of over 40 vintage and early Cecil Beaton photographs in its dedicated online viewing room. The site is populated with in-depth essays and a range of detailed imagery, bringing context and information to each work. The photographs survey Beaton's career, ranging from portraits of the 'Bright Young Things' in the 1920s, to his innovative fashion work and portraiture in the 1930s and 1950s.

Wow!

These portraits by Cecil Beaton are remarkable! As strong today as when he made them so many years ago, even though I wasn't there.

Thanks for posting them Michael.
