Inhaltsangabe: The definitive collection of Cecil Beaton's war photography, drawing on a wealth of material and accompanied by his own diary entries At the beginning of World War II Cecil Beaton was commissioned by the British government to photograph the home front. He set to work recording both the destruction of the city, and the heroism of Londoners under attack. He conducted a survey of Bomber and Fighter Commands for the RAF, which was published with his own astute commentary. Beaton was an effective propagandist, but his voice, like his photographs, was touchingly elegant. Beaton's wartime work amounted to 7,000 photographs. He traveled through the Western Desert and on to Iraq, Palestine, Transjordan, Syria, and India, where he photographed the final days of the Raj in New Delhi and Calcutta before joining the Burma campaign. He ended the war deep in Chinese territory where he witnessed the Nationalist resistance to the Japanese. This collection of Beaton's masterful WWII photography captures the home front, the Middle East, arms and vehicle manufacturing in Britain, India, the Burma Campaign, and the war in China. It also includes a chronology placing events in Beaton's life alongside developments in photography, journalism, and the arts; war photography; and world events. His original photographs are reproduced large on the page, alongside his diary extracts, allowing for deep scrutiny and appreciation of the images and their artist.
Über den Autor: Cecil Beaton was a diarist, painter, and interior designer, but is most recognized as a fashion and portrait photographer for Life magazine, Vanity Fair, and Vogue. He won several theater and film awards, including two Academy Awards for stage and costume design.

Buchbeschreibung Jonathan Cape. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Buchzustand: New. Before he was a Tony and Academy Award–winning costume and set designer, Cecil Beaton was famous as a fashion and portrait photographer, and made iconic images of Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother). When World War II broke out he produced a major body of photographs for the Ministry of Information in London—some 7,000 prints, with negatives—depicting life on the home front and on battlefronts in Africa, the Middle East, India, Burma, and China. In the some 150 images here, Beaton captures the war in his own touchingly elegant way, from a wide-eyed child recovering in hospital after being injured by shrapnel during a German air raid in London to a boatman with a waterproof bark cape in China, as well as evocative portraits of individual soldiers and civilians, meeting Beaton's camera with their own experiences of the war. 228.
