DescriptionThis class contains photographs of and by Messel. Included are photographs of Messel and his family, photographs of places he visited and also photographs of people, some apparently taken as reference photographs for portraits of friends and neighbours. Due to his theatrical and pesonal connections, the file includes photographs by several key names in photographic history, including Anthony Crickmay, Gordon Anthony, Edward Mandinian, Cecil Beaton, Angus McBean, Horst, von Hoyeningen and Lord Snowdon.
