For many of us, the very idea of photography has become difficult or impossible in recent weeks, yet it remains a fundamental part of our lives. Social distancing, quarantine, and our anxiety for those we love might stop us from going for a stroll outside with a camera and attending a workshop, festival, or seminar. But it doesn't shut down a conversation.
Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) is one of Britain’s most celebrated photographers and designers. His glamorous fashion photography and society portraits projected him to fame but his extraordinary work as a wartime photographer is less well-known.
"Lately, almost imperceptibly, a subtle sleight of hand has replaced the organic magic of photography with the cold science of digital technology and everything has changed. Like a cuckoo in the nest the digital image mimics the medium that once we understood and silently mocks those of us who still think we know what we’re looking at. Because truly we no longer do."
