Maurice Beck and Helen Macgregor (1886-1960)

Artist of 5 portraits
Maurice Beck and Helen MacGregor worked together in a studio in Marylebone where they were the chief photographers for British Vogue. There was something nonchalant about the lack of direction or rules with which they placed their lights: their haphazard effect often caused shadows with which other more professional photographers would have probably dispensed. However, their results were often notable.
