Hugo Vickers – Malice in Wonderland – My Adventures with Cecil Beaton
Hugo Vicker’s life took a dramatic turn in 1997 when the legendary Sir Cecil Beaton invited him to be his authorised biographer. The excitement of working with the famous photographer was dashed days later when Beaton died. Vickers was entrusted with Beaton’s papers, diaries and access to friends and contemporaries. Vickers has edited the witty and perceptive diaries which reveal the photographer’s many fascinating encounters and his observations of cultural figures of the time as well as members of the Royal Family.
