Cecil Beaton called him the best photographer in the country; Lord Snowden declared him a genius. It is no exaggeration to say that Angus McBean revolutionized portraiture in the 1930s, or that he immortalized the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor. Blending wit, drama and fantasy with the consummate skill of a master photographer, without a doubt Angus McBean has been one of the greatest influences on theatrical, portrait, creative and commercial photography in the last 100 years.
McBean's later works included being the photographer for The Beatles' first album
