Product Description

Review

"One of the most beautiful books of the year." (Richard Dorment Telegraph)

"Showcases Beaton’s grittier side as he captured countries and cultures affected by the Second World War." (Esquire)

"This plush Coffee table book contains the old rogue’s finest work…an eye-catching record of Britain at war." (Shortlist)

"Touching and often harrowing." (Huffington Post)

"Beaton had a supreme understanding of life as theatre, and set out to document the conflict with the same dramatic intensity he had used to capture society girls in the late 1920s and 1930s." (World of Interiors)

Book Description

Cecil Beaton's war photography, drawing on a wealth of material and accompanied by his own diary entries.

An absolutely beautiful picture book by one of the best photographer's there has ever been. This man had so much talent that he could make a row of tanks look beautiful! I attended the exhibition with his war work, at the Imperial War Museum, and so much wanted to bring a part of it with me home. But the book was too big and heavy to carry home on a flight. I ordered it from a secondary seller used actually, because I found the price of it too much for my budget, but it still looks absolutely great.

It is a great book, nicely representative of Beaton's work during the II WW time, in Europe and Asia. The quality of the pictures, and of the book is astonishing. Also the texts, fragments of Beaton's, explaining the context of great part of the pictures are well chosen and add interest and grace to the whole book.
It is much more than you can expect from a simple book with nice photographs.

and wasn`t disappointed when it arrived. Sumptuous book, you can spend hours losing yourself in the photos. Would recommend to anyone interested in photographs.
