CECIL BEATON
[1904 – 1980] British Photographer
His cherubic, almost simpleton, appearance is most disconcerting—for it gives no indication of the far from simple character of this somewhat twisted artist of the secret, prying lens. - Cecil Beaton - said of Henri Cartier-Bresson [diary 1935] "People on People. The Oxford Dictionary of Biographical Quotations", edited by Susan Ratcliffe, Oxford University Press Inc., New York 2001

Cocteau says I am Malice in Wonderland and I have succeeded in spending my life in an unreality made up of fun, so much too much fun and my interests are limited to the joys of certain superficial forms of beauty. - Cecil Beaton - [diary 1935] "People on People. The Oxford Dictionary of Biographical Quotations", edited by Susan Ratcliffe, Oxford University Press Inc., New York 2001
