He toured with the Rolling Stones, was painted by Salvador Dali and Francis Bacon and was friends with Karen Blixen, Andy Warhol and the Kennedy’s. Yes, Peter Beard knew how to live.

Not that he was merely a friend to the stars. He was also brilliant artist in his own right.

Combining photographs with collages that included animal blood and remains, dried leaves, Conrad quotes and insects, his ‘Diaries’ has a complex beauty that never seems to date.

Reissued by Taschen last year, people have a chance to revisit his distinctive work all over again.
