“Be daring. Be different. Be impractical. Be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of commonplace and the slaves of the ordinary.” – Cecil Beaton

A renowned English fashion & portrait photographer most known for his fashion & society portraits in Vanity Fair & Vogue throughout the mid 20th century, Beaton’s words are a wonderful reminder that it is more than OK to be different…even encouraged.

I love the idea of being “impractical.”
