STRIPES: Inspiration from a true icon – photographer and designer Cecil Beaton

Our inspiration this week turns to a true 20th century icon. One of the most prolific fashion and war time photographers, and later an award-winning costume designer, Cecil Beaton is an unforgettable name and creative force. Working in-house at renowned publications including Vanity Fair and Vogue, he created images of elegance and glamour, becoming a figure that would have a profound and lasting influence on portrait photography. Here we remember his passion for creating dramatic imagery using striking monochrome stripes.
