Cecil Beaton

Vogue and Wartime Fashion

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

For much of his career, Cecil Beaton worked as a photographer, cartoonist and writer for Vogue, one of the world's leading fashion and lifestyle magazines. His relationship with the magazine was strained at times but his contributions were always eye-catching and memorable. During the Second World War, Beaton juggled his role as an official war photographer with his work for Vogue.

For this talk, Hilary Roberts, curator of Cecil Beaton: Theatre of War, is joined by Josephine Ross, author of Beaton in Vogue, to discuss Beaton's striking work as a Vogue photographer and his photographic style in shooting wartime fashion.
