Synopsis: Presents an illustrated retrospective of one of the most distinguished photographers of the twentieth century, providing insight into the career of the international celebrity whose creativity also expressed itself in literature, theatre, painting, film and fashion

From Publishers Weekly: This catalogue of a British exhibition of Beaton's work comprises three parts: articles on various aspects of his art; full-page color plates; and a catalogue listing. The essay writers discuss Beaton's love of theatricality and artifice and its evidence in his style: subjects posed in period costume, shot against or reflected in mirrors, the photographer's own reflection visible in a photo, ironic and sometimes severely unflattering angles. Even his wartime photos have the oddly displaced quality of a stage set. The full-size color plates here are disappointingly few in number; the book's other sections are themselves well illustrated with photos, though these are smaller and black-and-white. Many of the same pictures also appear in Beaton in Vogue (see review above), where they are generally reproduced in larger size; this volume is perhaps more useful as commentary than for basking in Beaton's art.
