From the publisher: "When critics and historians are ready to give their definitive consideration of Sir Cecil Beaton's achievements, there is little doubt that as a diarist he will be found to have had few peers. But it is his reputation as a photographer that will live after him with the acclaim reserved for great artists." Includes Beaton's well-known images of Hollywood stars, Royalty, World War II, Fashion and travel, with extensive text by James Danziger.
