Description: Ten Out of Tenis a celebration of the best in British photography. It comprises ten photographs by each of ten leading photographers: Sir Cecil Beaton, Bill Brandt, Barry Lategan, Don McCullin, Roger Mayne, Norman Parkinson, Rankin, Lord Snowdon, John Swannell, and Albert Watson.The subject matter of the images cover a wide range: from fashion and beauty to portraiture and social documentary, from Beaton's portraits of British artists to Mayne's documents of 1950s street life, from the timeless elegance of a Parkinson fashion study to the searing war reportage of McCullin. The subjects of the portraits range from Sir John Gielgud and Princess Diana to Kate Moss and Gilbert & George, and the photographs date from 1936 to 2000. This is a wonderful selection of photographs edited by Martin Harrison, one of the most respected scholars of photographic history. All proceeds from the book will go to support the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
