9780002168113: Hundred Years Of Sail

Frank Beken sold his first picture when he was 14 in 1894. He learned his trade from his father Alfred. All he knew he taught his son Keith. The great firm of Beken of Cowes is, a hundred years after Alfred Beken started taking pictures of sailing ships in the Solent, under the guiding hand of Keith's son, Kenneth. It is a remarkable family, with a record that is unique in the annals of British photography, of whose finest work this book is a celebration and to whom it is a tribute. Keith and Kenneth Beken have chose these photographs from an archive of black and white plates and prints that numbers more than 75,000. Keith Beken has written the detailed captions to the photographs and Kenneth an appendix on the tools of the trade. The Foreword is by HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and the Introduction by Hammond Innes.
