Felice Beato


Felice Beato (1832 – 29 January 1909), was an Italian–British photographer. He was one of the first photographers to take pictures in East Asia and one of the first war photographers. He is noted for his genre works, portraits, and views and panoramas of the architecture and landscapes of Asia and the Mediterranean region.




What really drew me to his work was the subtlety of colour – natural and sepia shades faded with barely there dusty pastels, with some very prominent primary colours. I think it’s absolutely beautiful and I think it’s looking closer to what I hope my colour pallette will be.
