Legendary Fashion Photographers - Sir Cecil Beaton
Was a multi talented artist. He was a Photographer, Illustrator, Designer, Writer, Diarist and Aesthete.
Became famous for his Fashion Photography and Society Photographs. It seems like a common quality of the biggest photographers at the beginning of the 20th century was their friendship or connection to the high society; totally understandable since they were the only ones that could afford an art like photography. Still, it makes you think how we have always been fascinated about the lives of socialites.
He was picked up by Vogue in 1927, influenced the work of David Bailey among other photographers that would come after him. One of his working patterns, and he had many, was shooting 6x6 format.
