Cecil Beaton

chris beetles

I would love to be in London this week...


For the last few days of the Cecil Beaton exhibit
at the Chris Beetles Art Gallery...


The retrospective features 64 images that cover more than 40 years of Beaton's career. It would be so lovely to see the exhibit and then head over to the Tea Palace in Notting Hill for tea, don't you think?

(PS: The third photo is my favorite. Can you imagine the caption: "Dear, I found the most fabulous little fixer-upper for us!")

More on Chris Beetles website.

Beaton is fabulous and I'll bet you'd have all sorts of ideas on what to do with that fixer!

What gorgeous shots. That first one - such a beautiful face and simple composition to frame it.

Ok, you have convinced me - I am ready to fly over the pond and be charmed and have a fabulous cup of tea - the tea Palace no less.
Indeed the last image is a classic !
Sign me up for the field trip.

Well, I live in London but this is the first time i've heard of Cecil Beaton! From what you have here though, I may just pop along to try and learn something. Thanks!
