The first book to examine the work of the American photographer Curtis Moffat. During his career he worked alongside Man Ray, experimenting with abstract photography. In the 1920s and early '30s he lived in London and whilst there produced stylish portraits of leading figures from society, the stage and the arts, including Cecil Beaton, The Sitwells, Nancy Cunard, Lady Diana Cooper, Tallulah Bankhead and Daphne Du Maurier. At the beginning of the 21st century Moffat’s daughter, Penelope Smail donated his extensive archive to the Victoria and Albert Museum. This book is drawn from that archive and reveals Moffat’s pioneering yet little-known photography in all its depth and beauty.
