Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland and British Vogue contributing editor Robin Muir talk about the life, loves and works of Sir Cecil Beaton, one of the greatest British portrait photographers of the 20th century.

Beaton is famous for his images of elegance, glamour and style that appeared in Vogue and Vanity Fair. Muir is author of a book that accompanies a major new exhibition of his work at the National Portrait Gallery in 2020 (12 March-7 June) called Cecil Beaton’s Bright Young Things. The bright young things are the flamboyant and rebellious artists, writers, socialites and partygoers Beaton mixed with and photographed.

Vreeland, a documentary-maker, has produced a film and book, Love, Cecil: A Journey with Cecil Beaton. It is an evocative portrait of a man including his influences, his friends, his Hollywood conquests and his great drive to create. It is also about troubled souls trying to create open and tolerant worlds of art and culture.
