Cecil Beaton As War Photographer
"[The story of Beaton is always hinged on the war as being a transformative moment for him - a move from the frivolities of celebrity glamour to the realities of conflict and destruction. ... [Yet] Beaton rarely got too close to combat and his images lack the gruesome realities of battle that you find in Frank Capa's jarring work. Instead we get icons of war, men and women captured in moments of staged realities." The Smart Set 10/01/12
