It's Oscars season once again! The nominations for the 2013 awards were announced this week, so no doubt Tinseltown will be alive with gossip until the big event on 24 February.
Cecil Beaton, then, seems the obvious choice for this week's From The Archive. Not only was he the leading portrait photographer of his day for movie stars and high society, he was also an Oscar winner himself.
The exhibition Faces celebrated Beaton's work and was shown in Foam back in 2005.
