This has been on since the Summer, but we went to see it and loved it thought you should know about it. Most noted for his success as a fashion photographer and costume designer for the stage and screen, Cecil Beaton was also a prolific war photographer. A large number of the images on display at the exhibition have never been released to the public before and the exhibition comprises over 350 photographs, artifacts, vintage documents and publications, film clips, digital media and design work.
